ST MARY’S CHAPEL, SNAPE CASTLE
Snape Village In the big picture the best approach is off the A 1 at the Leeming Bar Junction, through Aiskew to Bedale. In Bedale follow signs to Masham and about onemile out of Bedale turn left to Snape and the Arboretum at Thorp Perrow. Both are signposted.
Go on past the Aboretum , over King’s Keld (a bend and blind summit in the trees - please be careful !) ask yourself - Did Henry 8th really fall off his horse there?, local folklore says he did! Just after that you will see Snape Castle to your left. Turn left at the sign, go through the avenue of Lime Trees and shortly after the bend you will see the
