pub walk

A circular pub walk from The Moors Inn in Appleton-le-Moors in North Yorkshire. The walk follows pretty ancient stone lanes with mixed hedgerows away from Appleton-le-Moors and passes through a small belt of woodland to reach the picturesque village of Hutton-le-Hole. The route then continues across meadows and on to reach the edge of the moors. Passing through Spaunton, the route then returns along more ancient lanes. A really great mix of everything, this walk gives you a taste of the region with villages, lanes, moors, woodland and, of course, lots of sheep! Most of the route is fairly easy walking with just gentle and long gradients, although the paths can get quite muddy after periods of rain. The road climbing up to Spaunton village is the only steep section. There are no stiles on route but several gates and kissing gates. There are sheep roaming free within the villages and so keep dogs under control. You may also come across cattle in one field, so take particular care if you are walking with a dog. Allow 3 hours. For an extended route: The Moors Inn is open every day from 11am to 11pm and serves a selection of great food and a range of local ales. Walkers and dogs are very welcome and there are also 7 en-suite bed and breakfast rooms available.
