Walk Description

Leave the station and turn right onto Station Road, keeping to the pavement on the left side. Walk through the village until you see a track off through an open field on the right. Walk along the track, even though the right of way technically crosses the field. Follow the track as it double bends and walk until a crossroads of tracks between some trees on the right.

Carry straight on, and turn left, then right to follow the edge of the field. At the junction with the next field, carry straight on along the hedgerow and follow the track to meet Clay Lane in Breighton. Turn left and follow Clay Lane until the white building on the right – Ivy House Farm.

Turn right and walk beyond the driveway onto the public footpath into the fields and towards the wood. Keep the wood on the left, then duck between the line of trees and the hedgerow for the next field, and follow the hedgerow until you meet more trees. Turn left, then immediately right, to be on a track for a very short time, before walking alongside a wood on the right. Go between the wood and a hedgerow on the left. Follow the path around the end of the wood to keep the trees on the right now. Keep to the edge of the field to meet a track, and turn right. Turn left at the corner along a hedgerow on the right, then turn right through a gap in the hedge.

Aim for the track you can see in the far corner to the left of the isolated trees. Turn left on the track, and follow it. As it turns hard left, carry straight on to the end of the field. Look for the solo tree, and head towards the farm buildings in the distance. Join the farm track and don’t leave it, following it all the way to the T-junction with a public road. Turn right into Wressle, keeping left at the Y junction, then turning left to return to the railway station.
