A 4.5 mile circular walk close to the Yorkshire Wolds village of Wetwang in East Yorkshire. This relatively flat walk through arable fields is quiet and peaceful. It is a pretty walk through woodland, open fields and grassland which changes with the seasons. It is particularly good if you have nervous dogs and don’t want to encounter too many other dogs or walkers. The paths are clear and your well-behaved pooch should be able to enjoy a lovely romp on this walk.

The terrain is fairly easy with clear paths and tracks between and across arable fields, which can get just a bit overgrown at the height of the growing season. There are no stiles, gates or livestock on route. There is a small amount of road walking, along quiet lanes and roads. Allow 2 hours.

Wetwang is situated at the crossroads of the A166 York to Bridlington, and the B1248 Malton to Beverley roads. The village is six miles to the west of Driffield. The walk starts and finishes at the roadside car park on the B1248 road, just south of Wetwang in the Beverley direction. Leaving Wetwang on the B1248 heading south towards Beverley, after about 1 mile there is a left turn towards some farm buildings – with a sign for Cadger Castle. Opposite this turn, on the right hand side, is a pull-in area (with room for a good number of cars), where parking and unloading of dogs can be done safely. This is where the walk starts. The nearest post code is for the Cadger Castle farm buildings (on the opposite side of the B1248 to the car park), YO25 9LQ.

Heading away from the main road, follow Green Lane westwards and slightly uphill through the trees. The path is enclosed, but not claustrophobic and offers panoramic views of Wetwang, looking to the right. The first documentary evidence of a settlement here occurs in the Domesday Book of 1086 although evidence of earlier occupation has been found. The late Yorkshire broadcaster Richard Whitely was Mayor of Wetwang for many years.

Pass the bridleway sign to the left for Tibthorpe and then continue onwards at an unsigned junction of paths – ignore the path to the right for now, it is part of the route back from Wetwang.

Keep ahead on the now greener path, as it heads slightly downhill with fields on both sides. Follow the next bridleway sign to the right along a wide track, initially with a hawthorne hedge to the right. Continue down into Thorndale, before meeting Thorndale Lane, near a public bridleway sign on the west side of Wetwang.

Continue straight ahead along the lane for a short while, before following a public footpath sign to the right, along the edge of a field and with a hawthorne hedge to the left. At the end of the hedge, continue diagonally left across the field towards the end of another hedge, then continue across another field towards some houses to the right of a large barn. Aim for a wooden footpath sign in the hedge by the houses.

Pass through the hedge – opposite Southfield Close, and (with your dog on a lead), turn right to follow the roadside path to reach the T-junction between Southfield Road and Southfield Well Balk.

Turn right again down the lane. The concrete road eventually turns into a grass track. Continue straight ahead until it meets Green Lane – traversed earlier in the walk. Turn left at this point and head along Green Lane back to the start of the walk by the B1248 road.
