Wrawby Star Carr Lane walking route

Distance

2.85 Miles

Start

St. Mary’s Church, Melton Road (A18) Wrawby. There are lay-bys on the A18 for parking.

Route

1. Cross the A18 with care into Vicarage Road opposite. Continue along this road through the village and downhill to the crossroads at the B1206 Barton Road.

2. Cross the road into Star Carr Lane.

3. Immediately before the M180 turn left along a way marked path and continue to the third field boundary (obviously on the left).

4. Turn left onto Brickyard Lane, a single-track dirt lane. 

5. At the A18 road, turn left along the footpath along the B1206 towards Barton.

6. About 100 yards/metres before the 40mph road signs, turn right, cross the road following a way marked path through the hedge, up the field alongside another hedge on the right.

7. As the path bears left, it enters an enclosed section and emerges onto a surfaced lane. Take the first road right (Little Lane).

8. Bear right into and back along Vicarage Road to the start.

Terrain

Wrawby is on a hill. The walk basically goes along a hillside, drops into the Ancholme Valley, stays level for a while the gradually regains height lost, more noticeably from point six. From point one to two is on pavements, initially crossing the A18. At point two care also needs to be taken crossing the B1206 Barton Road.

Star Carr Lane is a quiet, surfaced lane with no pavements. The field headland path from three to four is wide, uneven in places near the motorway. Brickyard Lane is a single track, level, grit surfaced lane. Pavement is followed along the B1206 to point six, most of it separated from the road by a strip of grass.

The road crossing here needs care. The footpath from point six to seven is a rising, grassy path, emerging through the final enclosed section into a single track surfaced lane with no pavement. Pavement is rejoined in Vicarage Road with the final road crossing of the A18 to the church.

Time

Allow between an hour and an hour and a half at a leisurely pace.
