Walk Description

Begin your journey at the Forestry Commission parking area on Common Lane, located on the western side of the woods. When approaching from York on the A1079, heading east, make a right onto Sutton Lane before reaching Pocklington. After approximately a mile, turn left onto Common Lane. The parking area is situated on the right, half a mile down the lane.

To commence your walk, cross the street from the parking area and enter the common through the gate. You’ll encounter two pathways; for this particular route, opt for the left fork.

This route first takes you along a broad trail which then narrows into a woodland path, leading you through lush greenery for about a mile. Exiting the woodland, you’ll find yourself walking along a track with a vast open green field to your right. This path leads directly into the quaint village of Allerthorpe, marking the midpoint of your journey.

After a refreshing stop, continue your adventure by heading straight from the pub’s front door and proceed down the road for a few hundred meters to the village’s edge. There, turn right off the road onto a track, where you’ll experience a blend of urban and woodland environments.

Finally, at the field’s end, a gate straight ahead will lead you back into the woods. Follow the path as it veers left after the gate, winding through the natural forest and returning you to your starting point at the car park.

Why not finish up with refreshments at the Boot & Slipper in Barmby Moor.
