We had a break from bus stops and went back to village mapping. The village of Wilberfoss is alongside the A1079, which is not my favourite road, but once you're in the village the busy road between Hull and York just disappears. We followed the twists and turns of the older part of the village with its extensions into newer stuff. There's a beck, a pub, a school, a church and it's a pleasant place. The beck is quite small but there's a chunky bridge over it which seems way too big. I traced the beck from NPE, I tried the new 1:25000 maps but they didn't load after a few minutes so I gave up. This internet connection is variable, so it might have been us, but NPE loaded almost instantly.
