Walk Description

Off-street parking along High Street, DN6 9AG. Please park considerately for local residents. If busy, the main Campsall Country Park car park is off Church Field Road.

From wherever you have parked, head towards Back Lane, the road at the left side of the closed Old Bells pub. Turn down Back Lane, with the pub on your right. As the lane turns to the right, follow the public footpath sign as it points straight on. Follow the path on the ground as it bends around to the left roughly along the line of the trees. The path enters a field after crossing over Stream Dyke. Look for the path on the ground towards the clear gap in the wood at the far side and walk to it. Cross the drain and enter the wood. The path crosses through the wood, turning slightly to the left just before you leave the cover of the trees.

Follow the line of the hedges on your left, going through the gap in the hedges to the next field. Look for a clearing in the trees on the far side wood and head towards that across the field, which is a public footpath. Once through the trees, turn left to walk along the track to reach Church Field Road. Turn left and walk along the pavement, past Askern Leisure Centre, and turn left in the Campsall Country Park car park.

Head out along the path from the far left corner of the car park, straight to the gap in the trees across the field. Follow the path through the wood and then between the lake on the right and a drain on the left. At the south end of the lake, the path turns right, crossing over a footbridge and eventually reaching Back Lane through a gate. Return back to where you have parked. Following this path between the fields to reach Home Farm.

Go through the farm and cross over the footbridge, through the wood to reach the village of Boynton. Turn left at the first road and walk through the hedge-lined path into the field. Follow the clear line on the ground towards the wood in the far distance. Keeping the wood on your right, follow the line of the trees to reach a road. Turn right, and then left on the B1253.

Carefully follow the B1253, and just after the brick walls of a caravan park, there’s a footpath sign pointing to the left, with a protective fence around the exit. Follow the line of the path on the ground and soon this path becomes the road Eastgate. Continue to follow Eastgate to return to where you are parked.
