Running parallel to Martell Drive are the listed 16th-century wall and gates associated with the original 16th century "Bury" Manor House. The Bury Manor House has been demolished and rebuilt on two occasions since the 16th century (most recently during the 1800s) and the estate is scheduled for further sympathetic development with parkland as neighbours gradually settle with the owners' plans.

Between Martell Drive and the wall is the beginning of the centuries-old "Ladies Walk" that leads (within 300 metres) to the River Ouse. This idyllic countryside path continues to the north-west along the banks of the River Ouse to the local parish church: All Saints Church, the west tower, nave and chancel of which were commissioned in the 12th century to supplement the existing Anglo-Saxon church. To the south-east, the tree-lined walk leads towards the King William Pub (the building for which dates from the 1600s) and local shopping facilities.
