A circular walk from the market town of Kirkbymoorside in Ryedale. The route heads east and north, visiting the site of the former Ravenswick Hall, the beautiful Ravenswyke Woods and a long stretch of Manor Vale Woods.
The walk has several climbs and descents throughout, including a couple of quite steep sections. A few sections (especially in the woodlands) can be very muddy so good boots are a must. You will need to negotiate one field gate and several kissing gates, but there are no stiles or livestock on route. Allow 2 hours.
There are public toilets in Town Farm car park (just behind the library) at the start and end of the walk. If you are looking for refreshments there are plenty of pubs and cafes centred around the Market Place in Kirkbymoorside at the start and end of the walk.

Please respect people’s privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.
