From the bus stops, turn so the Fire Station is behind you, and walk away from it alongside the A64. There is not pavement here, just grass verges, so be careful walking alongside this busy road – but it isn’t for too long. Just after the national speed limit signs, you are turning left following a public footpath sign down an access road. If you are on the opposite side of the A64, you’ll need to cross over first.
Follow the access road, past the entrance to the farm on the left, after which the road changes to a path. Continue along this keeping the hedgerow on your left. It turns slightly to the right, and then passes through the hedgerow, turns to the right and enters into a wood. Follow this through to the road, called White Gate. Turn right here, and you are on the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail.
As the road turns to the left, the National Trail turns right, so follow this alongside of the hedgerow. When you meet the corner of the wood, turn left, and follow the path, past a wood on the left, to a field boundary – where you turn left. Follow this line, turning right at the next field boundary and walking with a wood to your right.
At the end of the wood, turn left, then right to follow around the corner of the field. This is still the Yorkshire Wolds Way. Now there’s a wood to your left side, which goes half way through this field. Cross into the next, where the path takes a slight left, to reach an access road. Cross over, following the signs for the Yorkshire Wolds Way into the next field. There’s a small wood on your left, and then two open fields, before you zig zag to your left, then right around the corners of fields.
Go alongside three fields, before turning left, then right around a plantation, to reach a road, called Lutton Lane. Turn right here, and follow this road all the way down to the village of West Heslerton – taking care of traffic on this country road, which changes its name to White Gate.
When you reach the A64, turn right and the bus stops are on either side of the traffic island.
