A circular walk near the market town of Norton on Derwent in Ryedale. The route performs a loop to the south to visit the picturesque village of Langton, taking in long stretches of peaceful tracks with stunning views plus chance to meet racehorses and pigs along the way. This walk is published through a collaboration with Ryedale District Council. For more visitor information on the area including events and accommodation, go to The walk has several climbs and descents throughout. The paths are generally firm in the dry months but can get very muddy in winter and after periods of rain. You will need to negotiate the remains of one stile (now just a wooden step about 30cm high) plus several single field and bridle gates. The vast majority of the fields are arable and the track also leads you past several pig enclosures which are surrounded by electric fencing, so be careful to keep children and dogs away from this. A couple of very short sections can get a little overgrown in the height of the growing season. You will need to cross one short grass pasture (this was empty when we walked, but could be holding livestock at times). Allow 2.5 hours. There are no refreshments or other facilities on route, but there is a handy bench in Langton if you want to take a picnic. Alternatively, Norton is just a short drive away at the end of your walk where you will find several pubs and restaurants on Church Street and Commercial Street. OS Map: Explorer 300 Howardian Hills and Malton. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.
