A circular walk from the beautiful village of Thornton-le-Dale in the North York Moors. The walk takes in the village itself along with the nearby hamlet of Ellerburn and the pretty paths alongside the village's beck. (A shorter version of this walk, 2.5 miles, is also available on AllTrails which omits the final loop along Longlands Lane). The paths are a mixture of pavements and woodland/field paths, the latter of which can get muddy. There are a few steady inclines and the route includes several kissing gates but there are no stiles. You will be sharing some of the fields with sheep so take care with dogs. There are public toilets alongside the car park at the start of the walk. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.

We only did half of this walk. It was lovely, fields with cattle in so dogs need to be on leads. A bit muddy in places and a steep hill up one field, otherwise as very gentle walk. We stopped and had a lovely ice cream and the pup had a paddle in the stream that runs through the village.
