Walk Description

A circular walk (part of which is easy access) from the market town of Kirkbymoorside in Ryedale. The route discovers some of the highlights of this delightful town including the Shambles, Market Cross, Old Police Station and the large pond, the site of a former moated castle that now creates the perfect picnic spot with glorious views across the town.

The first half of the walk follows pavements around the town, making this stretch suitable for pushchairs. The second half includes a few steps and two kissing gates plus a climb up a rough grass meadow. This latter half of the walk can be muddy or a little overgrown in part, but is worth it for the views. Allow 1 hour.

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. OS Map: Explorer OL26 North York Moors Western Area. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Please respect people’s privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.
