|Tockwith and the River Nidd|
|Author: DogWalksYorkshire, Published: 17 Mar 2017||Walk Rating:|
|North Yorkshire, York|
|A 4.5 mile circular walk from the village of Tockwith, near Wetherby in North Yorkshire. If you want a fairly gentle walk along quiet country lanes and by the riverside, where your pooch has plenty of opportunities to be off the lead and have a good run by the river then this walk may be for you. |
The route is relatively flat with just some gentle slopes. You will need to negotiate some gates plus three stiles. There can be electric fencing alongside these stiles, so dogs may need a lift over. You may be sharing a couple of the fields with cattle, so take particular care with dogs. Allow 2 hours.
Tockwith village is located about 9 miles west of York in North Yorkshire. From the B1224 York to Wetherby road, follow the signs for Tockwith from Marston Moor or Bilton. From the A59 York to Harrogate road, follow the signs for Tockwith from Moor Monkton and Cattal. The village is also served by buses, including buses 412 and 413 from York to Wetherby and Harrogate, operated by Eddie Brown and Connexionsbuses. There is street parking available in the village. The walk starts at the road junction between Kirk Lane and Marston Road in Tockwith, near the two pubs. Approximate post code YO26 7PR.
|Start to Cattle Grid|
Start point: 53.9652 lat, -1.2867 long
Start at the junction of Kirk Lane and Marston Road in Tockwith by the two pubs; The Boot and Shoe and the Spotted Ox. Set off down the main street signed towards Cattle and Cowthorpe, passing the Spotted Ox on your right.
|Cattle Grid to River Nidd|
Start point: 53.9782 lat, -1.2836 long
Beyond this point the lane is private, so turn left down a rugged track – even though it isn’t signposted. Keep following the hedge lined rugged track as it curves left and right, eventually heading towards the river.
|River Nidd to Kissing Gate|
Start point: 53.984 lat, -1.2862 long
Climb a stile to the left marked by a blue waymarker and continue along the built-up flood defence embankment, with the river to the right. There may be cows in the field here, so be prepared to put pooch on the lead for a short while.
|Kissing Gate to Amblers Farm|
Start point: 53.98 lat, -1.295 long
After the right-hand river bend, pass through a lonely kissing gate below on the left, and keep ahead across a field with the tree line to your left. Heading towards the hedge and trees, as the path bears left look out for a little kissing gate buried in the Hawthorne hedge to your left. Pass through into a field, and continue diagonally right towards a waymarked kissing gate by a metal gate in the corner.
|Amblers Farm to End|
Start point: 53.9758 lat, -1.2947 long
At a track by a public footpath sign and the entrance to the farm, turn left and head along the track until reaching the junction with Ness Lane. Turn right and head along the lane back to the junction with Fleet Lane. Turn left and follow the road back into Tockwith village.

A pleasant circular flat walk that leads you for part of the way along the bank of the river Nidd.

Park along Ness Lane as the road up to the hall is quite a distance .

Lovely walk with beautiful views of a typical English riverside. You could just imagine toad and ratty living along here. We loved it

A beautiful walk with endless English riverside views. Toad and ratty would be at home along these river banks. It was made even more special by the sight of a hunting barn owl. We loved it.

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!
