|Visit Ryedale: Malton and Broughton Lane|

|North Yorkshire, Ryedale|
|A 4.5 mile (7km) circular walk (part of which is easy access) from the market town of Malton in Ryedale. The route heads west, leaving the town via the footbridge over the A64 to explore a pretty woodland belt and a beautiful stretch of the green track, Broughton Lane with lots of wild flowers to enjoy in the spring and summer. This walk is part of the Visit Ryedale Collection, published through a collaboration between iFootpath and Ryedale District Council. For more visitor information on the area including events and accommodation, go to www.VisitRyedale.co.uk |
The walk is relatively flat with just a few gentle gradients. The route follows a mixture of pavements, woodland paths and an unmade farm track, the latter two of which can be muddy after wet weather. There are no stiles, steps or livestock on route and the paths are all generous width. You will need to negotiate two field gates and two kissing gates, but the first of these is about 1.5 miles into the route, meaning it would be possible to take a rugged pushchair or disability buggy along this first stretch during the dry summer months (giving a ‘there and back’ route of 3 miles). There are a few road crossings that need care, but the stretches that follow roads all have pavements or paths alongside. Allow 2 hours.
There are public toilets in Malton Market Place at the start of the walk. If you are looking for refreshments you will be spoilt for choice with restaurants, pubs and cafes centred around Malton’s Market Place at the start or end of your walk. OS Map: Explorer 300 Howardian Hills and Malton. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Please respect people’s privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.
Malton is easily accessed from the A64. The walk starts and finishes outside the Milton Rooms in the south west corner of Malton’s Market Place. If you are coming by car, park in the Water Lane pay and display car park which is accessed directly off Railway Street. The fee for up to 6 hours is £4.30 (correct Apr 2016) or half price if you use a Ryedale Parking Smartcard. Approximate post code YO17 7NR. If you are coming by public transport, the bus stops on Railway Street (Railway Street N-bound and Wells Street W-bound) are served by several routes. Alternatively, Malton railway station is only 200 metres south of the Water Lane car park (just south of the river crossing). For help with planning your journey by public transport please visit www.traveline.info. To reach the Market Place, head north along Railway Street, turn left for a few paces and then turn right into Saville Street. Turn left through the Market Place to reach the Milton Rooms.
|Start to A64 Footbridge|
Start point: 54.1351 lat, -0.7993 long
The walk begins in the south west corner of Malton’s Market Place, outside the Milton Rooms. Standing with your back to the Milton Rooms facing the church in the centre of the Market Place, turn right along the pavement, passing the church across to your left. As you draw level with the Post Office on your right, turn left across the road and walk directly ahead on the paved section which leads you past the Old Town Hall on your right.
|A64 Footbridge to Breedycroft Lane|
Start point: 54.1386 lat, -0.816 long
At the far side of the bridge, turn left down the slope and then bear right to join the path through a tunnel of trees, leading you directly away from the A64. At the end of this path, pass alongside the remains of a stile and keep ahead through the trees to reach a crossroads of paths (with a gate ahead and marked with a fingerpost).
|Breedycroft Lane to Braygate Street|
Start point: 54.1474 lat, -0.8242 long
Turn left for just a few metres to reach a junction with Broughton Road. Cross over with care and take the tree-lined stone farm track directly ahead, signed as a public bridleway to Braygate. Follow this stone track (Broughton Lane) for some distance, climbing steadily and then levelling off. In the early summer months the track is lined with beautiful foxgloves and thistles.
|Braygate Street to York Road|
Start point: 54.1312 lat, -0.8278 long
Follow this grass verge (heading east) and in the field on your right you will see the white railings which mark the horse gallops, used by the many nearby racehorse stables and trainers. Follow the road as it crosses the A64 via a bridge and then swap to the left-hand side of the road to pick up the pavement which begins here.
|York Road to End|
Start point: 54.1313 lat, -0.8083 long
York Road leads you back towards the centre of Malton. As you draw level with The Elms (house number 5) on your right, cross over the large side road (which runs to the left) and keep ahead to reach a major junction. Again cross over the left-hand side road (signed to Amotherby) to continue ahead on the main road (the right-hand branch). Follow this pavement passing the war memorial on your left and the Talbot Hotel on your right.

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
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!
