Description: From Knaresborough we follow the River Nidd in a southerly direction for a short distance and then head towards Birkham Wood and Plompton Hall. From there we continue to Little Ribston and return to the Nidd for our lunch-break, looking across the river to Ribston Hall. We then follow part of the Knaresborough Round route to Goldsborough before looping back to Knaresborough Castle. The walk has lovely views of the river Nidd, and across rolling countryside and is mostly on good footpaths and tracks across farmland, but can be muddy in parts and we have a couple of busy roads to cross.
