Walk Description

Start the walk in Burton Leonard and head west through farmland and agricultural fields. After reaching South Stainley join the more popular Ripon Rowel long distance footpath. A short cut back to Burton Leonard can be made past some lime kilns but better is to continue along the good track to the village of Copgrove. From here a faint footpath drops to a small stream before climbing back to Burton Leonard.

Food afterwards

Try The Inn at South Stainley or the Chequers Inn at Bishop Thornton.
