Getting There

A circular walk from Huggate that passes through dry valleys created around 18,000 years ago at the end of the Ice Age. These valleys, known locally as dales, are one of the highlights of the Yorkshire Wolds and lie between largely arable fields. The first half of the walk follows the Yorkshire Wolds Way and passes the Huggate Poetry Bench, one of several art works created for the WANDER project. There are some moderately steep descents and ascents into and out of the dales, and the paths are a mixture of field edges and tarmac drives. There are kissing gates and field gates on the route, but no stiles. One field is marked as a bull field and horses may be present in another (a road detour can avoid the horses). Allow three hours to enjoy the tranquility of the dales.

Huggate, which has post code YO42 1YH, lies on a minor road south of the A166 between Stamford Bridge (12 miles to the west) and Driffield (10 miles to the east). Turn north off the minor road into the village along Stocks Hill, continuing to Church Street, to find roadside parking. Care is needed to find safe parking, avoiding entrances along the narrow road, and respecting local notices requesting parking for residents only. A good spot may be found just before the right-hand turn towards the church.

Good walk, nice scenery. Had to navigate my way past a few cows and their babies who were guarding the gate...other than that all good

Loved this walk. Deffo make sure you follow the instructions on this app rather than just trailing off on different public footpath signs you see (which there are plenty of) to ensure you get to see the best views of the valleys.

Lovely walk. Good opportunities for dogs to be off lead but we put them back on when livestock is around. We went the wrong way twice lol but easy to get back on track. Great for everyone, you can shorten the walk, or go further afield.
