A 6 mile circular walk from the village of North Dalton in East Yorkshire. The route follows a mixture of flint tracks and green lanes across fields and by woods; all with lovely views of the Wolds. The picturesque village of North Dalton is situated around the village pond, which has The Star public house on its south side.

The walk follows easy terrain, with only gentle gradients. There are no stiles or livestock on route and just a few gates to negotiate. Well-behaved dogs should be able to enjoy plenty of off-lead time. Allow 3 hours.

North Dalton is situated on the B1246 road, 9 miles east of Pocklington – following the signs towards Driffield and Bridlington. From the east, take the A614 road from Driffield and follow the signs towards North Duffield. The walk starts in the village centre and there is roadside parking in North Dalton village. Approximate post code YO25 9XA.

In North Dalton, by the red brick walls of Westwood House, near a telephone box, look for the public bridleway sign along a driveway to Centre House Farm. With farm buildings to the right continue straight ahead towards a large waymarked metal gate.

Pass through the gate and continue onwards along a track, initially with animals grazing on both sides – the livestock is fenced off, but it may be an ‘on the lead’ period! The track heads north past the cricket ground and portakabin changing facilities and along chalk, flint terrain for about a mile and-a-half. Pass through another gate with a blue waymarker and stay on the track – avoiding the gap into the field on the right.

The track rises, with open fields on both sides and passes some trees to the left before becoming greener as it drops down alongside a wire-and-post fence. Just after the fence ends, the path turns downhill to the left, angling towards a gate with a blue waymarker. Pass through and immediately turn left through another waymarked gate, on to a green track.

Continue ahead in a westerly direction along the edge of fields through Deep Dale. Follow the blue arrows as the track turns left then right, before heading along the other side of the hedge towards Haywold Farm. Pass a public bridleway junction before walking a short stretch along a concrete path. The path soon becomes green again as it bears left at a gap in the hedge.

Ignore a path to the right and continue ahead to another public bridleway junction. Follow the sign to the left, along a green path with hedges on both sides. The path reaches the road between North Dalton and Huggate, where cars may be parked – some dog-walkers like to start and finish here.

Cross the road and following a public bridleway sign, continue along a concrete driveway, past some farm buildings towards Arden Fleets Farm. After around 0.75 miles, turn left following a footpath sign for the Minster Way. This path heads along the edge of fields, alongside hedgerows, back towards North Dalton.

At the end of the hedge, follow the yellow waymarkers left then right back into the village. A Minster Way public footpath sign points the way past Tithe Farm and the church. All Saint’s Church stands presiding over the village. It has a Norman doorway and the arch between the nave and the chancel also comes from that period. There is a low embattled tower and the most beautiful stained glass window at the west end in which the cross is depicted as a tree, at the west end are three lancet windows.

You will emerge back to the main road in North Dalton where the walk began.

A great walk for anyone with a dog. The majority of the time can be off the lead which is what we like. It is very flat so not difficult. I would suggest wellies as very muddy in winter months. It took us 2 1/2 hours with a small stop for a sandwich and drink.

A quiet pleasant walk, great for dog walkers & no big hills so good people who are needing rehabilitation and just getting back into walking

A pleasant walk with wide views and big skies. The route instructions were very clear and easy to follow and all the waymarks were easily found.
It was very quiet; we only met two other dog walkers in the whole six miles.
The words "no livestock" are always good to see and this was one of the reasons why we did this walk with the dogs. There are no streams or ponds en route so I would suggest that dog walkers carry water.
