Meeting Point: Welburn Church, Church Lane, YO60 7EG (SE 7208 6774)

Parking: There is limited parking on a grassy area next to Welburn Church, otherwise there is on-street parking in Welburn. Please respect local residents when parking on-street.

Description: A circular walk through the rolling countryside and woodland of the Howardian Hills. This walk starts crossing farmland at the edge of the Castle Howard estate before a steady climb along the side of Coneysthorpe bank woods where we should get views over Ryedale and to the North York Moors. After a lunch stop we head down through Coneysthorpe village and into the Castle Howard estate by the Great Lake and the Temple of the Four Winds before returning back to Welburn.

This walk may be muddy in several places so please come with suitable footwear.
