Start by facing the St Mary the Virgin church in Hemingbrough, and turn left to walk along the way down Main Street. At the junction, turn right down Landing Lane and follow it as it turns to the right and then to the left. Take care here as the pavement ends and you’ll be walking on the narrow road, although the road is seldom busy. Follow it as it turns to the right and eventually comes to a stop. Turn right and follow the public footpath signs, and walk along the east bank of the River Ouse.
Keep walking past a plant works on the right and after the river has turned to the left, watch out for a footpath on the right. Turn right down the footpath, and follow it to reach Newhay Lane. Turn right, and walk along the road, until it bends sharply to the left. Just afterwards, turn right on the hard crossing over the ditch, and then veer right to follow the footpath back to the church. Cross over the beck using the footbridge and then follow the path through the cemetery, past the church, back to Main Street.
