Main Street, Worlaby, near Saint Clement's Church. 

Route

1.With the church behind you, turn left along Main St. and shortly left again up The Hill.

2.As the road bends right, continue ahead up the green area, soon turning right on a way marked woodland path. Continue past Cleo, a wooden statue and later a wooden board out into a more open area.

3.Go through a gate into a fenced grassy area, cross this, keeping near the left side, enter another woodland path round to some wooden steps. Ascend and turn right.

4.At the road, turn right bending round slightly downhill.

5.Take the next road ‘The Hill’ left; continue steadily uphill to the next road junction.

6.Turn left along Middlegate Lane; continue to the second road turning to the left.

7.Turn left down this lane, which bends round to the left.

8.At the first right hand bend, turn left through a kissing gate in the hedge line onto an area of grassland. This is The Park. Cross the area downhill, aiming just to the right of the church. As you near the trees, the path is more obvious dropping away below.

9.Cross a small field aiming to left of a house, follow its drive (a public right of way) down a lane left to Fountain Corner.

10.Follow the lane round to the right past New Road and a farm road. A finger post indicates the way across a paddock and ménage and along an enclosed grass path.

11.Turn sharp left along another path crossing a paddock, through a gate, across the farm road and along a shorter enclosed section to a road.

12.Turn right into New Road and in a few yards left into a path next to trees and enclosed by wooden fences. This path bends right and emerges onto Low Road (B1204).

13.Turn left, pass the school and left again into Main Street, back to the start.

Terrain

Quite simply, this walk goes uphill, follows the edge of the Wold and returns down to the village. Pavement is followed up to point two.

A woodland path winds up, past Cleo through a clearing, through woodland again, up steps and up onto the road. This initially goes down and then steadily up and along Middlegate.

There is no pavement but good verges to step onto if traffic is encountered. From point eight, grass underfoot leads downhill with one short steeper section.

The area near Fountain Corner is quiet, fairly level with one more grassy slight drop just after the ménage. Pavement is followed from point 13 to the finish of the walk.

Time

Allow an hour and a half hours or more to take in the views.
