Walk Description

Start the walk in the village of Nunnington on the River Rye, home of a splendid country house. Leave the village and head west along a riverside path before joining a footpath climbing gently and then descending in to the village of Stonegrave. After looking around the village climb back to the broad ridge of Caukley’s Bank and enjoy the views north over the Yorkshire Moors and more immediately the rolling Hambleton Hills. Drop down to the village of West Ness on the River Rye and follow the river west back in to Nunnington.
