A circular walk from the small village of Barnburgh, near Doncaster in South Yorkshire. The route climbs steadily along a quiet track to reach the heights of Barnburgh Crags (or Barnburgh Cliff as it is sometimes called). This stretch of woodland path rewards you with far-reaching views to the south as well as sections of beautiful old rock face. The return leg leads you gently downhill through fields and woodland with a great view of the Dovecote in Barnburgh Park. The route has one long and steady climb followed by the equivalent descent. Whilst most of the paths are wide and well-made, some of the paths on the return leg are narrow and unmade and are prone to becoming both overgrown and muddy at times. This stretch can be avoided if necessary, by following a track and then pavement instead. You will not be sharing any of the paths with livestock, meaning well-behaved dogs can enjoy plenty of off-lead time. Near the start of the walk, there may be sheep in one of the side fields (behind electric fencing). There are no stiles or gates on route. There is one short stretch along the edge of a road which needs particular care. Allow 1.5 hours. Show more

This is quite a straight forward route. Follow Common Lane, when you come to a right hand bend in the lane you need to carry straight on - there is a fallen tree blocking the path but you can get round it. Follow the path with the river on your right up to the road, it is a busy road but you turn left and then left again and return to Auckley on the other side of the river. The path is quite overgrown at the end but you can get through. There is a wooden bridge which would cross you over the river but you may have to alter the end of the route to get back to your car. At the end of the path, climb up the stairs onto the road, turn left and follow the road to return to the start point on Common Lane.Show more
