historic site

A circular walk from the historic village of Stamford Bridge in the East Riding of Yorkshire. You'll have chance to explore the history of the village including the site of the Battle of Stamford Bridge and the old rail line, plus a long peaceful stretch alongside the idyllic River Derwent. The walk is almost entirely flat, some of the paths being fairly narrow and muddy/slippery after wet weather. There are no stiles on route, just several kissing gates and a squeeze gap to negotiate. Two of the fields you cross may be holding cattle so take care with dogs. About one mile of the route follows a quiet country lane which doesn't have pavements so take care of traffic on this stretch. Approximate time 1.5 hours.

Walked it today the paths from the river to Low Catton are a bit overgrown. Watch for the thistles and nettles of you have shorts on.

I would recommend this walk but in the reverse as the dogs can go in the River to cool down and have a drink
