|Millington and the Wolds|
|Author: DWY, Published: 11 Sep 2016||Walk rating : Rating:|
|East Yorkshire, Pocklington|
|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 to Warren Farm|
Start point: 53.9551 lat, -0.7353 long
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.
|Warren Farm to Footbridge|
Start point: 53.956 lat, -0.722 long
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.
|Footbridge to Millington Heights|
Start point: 53.9669 lat, -0.7175 long
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.
|Millington Heights to End|
Start point: 53.9774 lat, -0.7278 long
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.

I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
