Walmgate Stray, commonly known as Low Moor, is managed by City of York Council in consultation with Freemen of the City.
Walmgate Stray is a remnant of York's historic landscape. It covers the marshy area of Low Moor and two sections either side of The Retreat.
Low Moor is criss-crossed by informal paths, and in winter the going is often wet and muddy. It is, however, worth putting on your boots for a walk which will give you the sense of getting away from the city and meeting the cattle which graze this area for part of the year.
There is a surfaced shared use footpath which runs between York University and the A19 which leads to Millenium Bridge
