Worlaby Wold walking route

Worlaby Wold walking route

Distance

Three miles

Start

On the road called ‘The Hill’ in Worlaby. From Brigg take the B1206 road. After the level crossing take the B1204 on the left. As you enter Worlaby take the first right and ‘The Hill’ is the first road on the right. Careful roadside parking is possible here.

Route

1. Walk up the road following the bend to the right.

2. At a road junction bear right still steadily uphill.

3. At a left hand bend take the bridleway on the right. This is a steadily rising path with improving views over the Ancholme Valley.

4. Where the path meets the road turn right and walk carefully down the road.

5. Just past the Elsham turn off on your left take the right turn into Washdyke Lane.

6. At the left hand bend turn right onto waymarked field headland paths.

7. Soon after the Ladysmith Cottage the path enters the wood and emerges on a wide track, ignore a left hand branch and keep going until you emerge at a bend in the village street.

8. Turn right along the street and right again into ‘The Hill’.

Terrain

This is a more demanding walk. You start with uphill road walking until point three where you continue on the more steadily rising bridleway.

As you approach point four the path is descending on a roadway. It is possible to step off onto the verge here but it is difficult to walk along.

From point five to six the road is quiet and level. Between point six and seven this is field headland, sometimes good, sometimes uneven, undulating in height.

From point seven and eight the track is broad and basically flat. From eight to the finish you are on the pavement. (To cut out field headland paths.

At point three continue up ‘The Hill’ onto the Middlegate Road and drop down the B1206 and return via points four and three).

Time

Allow one and a half to two hours given the terrain and the views.
