Walk Description

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a linear walk that relies on a bus service for the return leg, which runs Monday to Saturday. If you choose to complete the walk on a Sunday, you will need to use a taxi for the return leg.

Alinear walk from the small village of Appleton le Street to the market town of Malton in Ryedale. Begin by catching the bus from Malton to Appleton le Street where you can enjoy a drink at the dog-friendly village pub before beginning the linear walk back into town. Along the way you will enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Howardian Hills including long stretches of pretty woodland and good views across the Castle Howard estate. This published through a collaboration with Ryedale District Council.

The walk has several climbs and descents throughout. The sections of paths through woodland and pasture can be very muddy, slippery and rutted at times so good boots are a must (or wellingtons with grips in the winter months). Some of the paths are also very narrow in part, so could be prone to becoming a little overgrown in the height of the growing season. There are no stiles or kissing gates on route, but you will need to negotiate several single bridle gates. The vast majority of the paths are enclosed within fences or within woodland. You will cross two grass fields which may be used as pastures. Towards the end of the walk, you will need to cross a horse training gallop (by ducking under the tall barriers) so take care to ensure you look and listen carefully for horses before you cross. Allow 3.5 hours.

There are public toilets in Malton Market Place near the end of the walk. If you are looking for refreshments, the Cresswell Arms in Appleton le Street is at the start point (check opening times) and you will be spoilt for choice with restaurants, pubs and cafes centred around Malton’s Market Place near the end of your walk.
