A 5 mile circular walk from the village of Millington in the Yorkshire Wolds. This walk has it all, a pretty village, dog-friendly pub, a real feeling of wide open space and plenty of green paths, fields and lanes (ideal for some canine romping). A couple of steady climbs reward the walker with stunning views of the Yorkshire Wolds.

The route has some steady climbs and some road walking along lanes with wide grass verges. The vast majority of the walk is over wide, grassy paths. You will need to negotiate some boardwalks, gates and stiles (all with dog gates) and you may also encounter cattle in a couple of fields. Allow 2.5 hours.

The village of Millington is located about 3 miles north-east of Pocklington. It is signposted from Pocklington on the A1079 York to Hull road, or approach from the A166 York to Bridlington road, following signs from the Fridaythorpe and Garrowby section. There is roadside parking within the village and the walk starts near the Rambler’s Rest tearooms. Approximate post code YO42 1TX.

Start in Millington village near the Rambler’s Rest tearoom, and walk up the road with the tea rooms to the right. As the road bends to the left, look out for a wooden signpost for Minster Way at the end of the lane joining the road from the right. Turn along this lane then continue right, downhill onto a track to a waymarked gate ahead. Pass through the gate and continue ahead to another waymarked gate, leading to a narrow duck-boarded path with a hedge on the left hand side.

Following another Minster Way sign, cross a stile with a dog gate then continue uphill using more duck boards heading through the field towards a gate ahead – bearing slightly left. Take the path to the right of the gate and follow a waymarker post, heading uphill keeping the field perimeter fence to the left. Halfway up, cross a stile (with dog gate) and continue uphill towards the tree line, with the farm buildings of Warren Farm to the left. Don’t forget to stop and look back at the panoramic views of Millington and the surrounding area.

Pass through the gate and turn left immediately following the Yorkshire Wolds Way sign along the edge of a field. By the farm buildings, bear right onto a track then take an immediate left following the hedge line into another field.

Keeping the hedge to the right, continue ahead while enjoying the views of the Wolds to the left. The green path heads downhill and to the left, following the fence line to a kissing gate in the right hand corner of the field. Go through the gate and continue downhill past a little Hawthorne tree to the left. The path bends and is quite steep as it makes for the floor of Sylvan Dale. At the bottom, turn left and follow the wide grassy path – ideal for a canine romp! Pass through a kissing gate to the right, which leads along a narrow enclosed path over a wooden footbridge across the edge of a pond.

Continue ahead across a quiet road then make for a waymarked gate in the hedge opposite. Pass through the gate and begin the steady climb uphill. Keep walking essentially ahead, through another gate along the edge of the field, with a wire and post fence to the right. Pass through a metal gate at the end of the field and continue along a waymarked Public Bridleway, which becomes a lane to the farm, Millington Heights, passed to the right.

At the end of the farm lane, turn left and head along the road – using the wide grass verges where possible. Look for a waymarked Public Bridleway sign on the right, and follow it through a gate, downhill along the edge of a field keeping the treeline to the left. At the bottom, turn left by a gate and continue along a track with the hedge line to the right.

Keep ahead past the Little Givendale Farm buildings along the track, leading back to the road. Cross the road and continue along the lane, The Balk, back towards Millington. Cross another quiet road and walk the final 0.25 miles back into the village.

Route fairly easy. Once you get on boardwalk right of houses as map shows just follow the signs. Had a lovely run with my dog. Nice wide paths with some testing hills.
