|Easy Countryside Trail: Terrington Mowthorpe Lane|
|Author: Howardian Hills, Published: 13 Mar 2017||Walk Rating:|
|North Yorkshire, Howardian Hills|
|A 2.5 mile (4km) there and back walk from the village of Terrington in North Yorkshire. This simple route allows you to experience the tranquillity and far-reaching views of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, without venturing too far from civilisation. This walk is part of the Howardian Hills Easy Countryside Trails collection, published through a collaboration between iFootpath and the Howardian Hills AONB Partnership, with the aim of providing countryside access for all in the Howardian Hills. |
The walk is generally flat with only a few gentle or moderate gradients, and can be lengthened or shortened to meet your own requirements. All the paths are wide vehicle tracks and there are no stiles, gates or steps on route. The lane is a no through road, so is usually very quiet, but do take care of occasional cars. The first 0.8 mile stretch (up to Waypoint 2: Blind Summit) is on a tarmac lane with an estimated maximum gradient of 1:16 or 6%. By following this shorter version of the walk (1.6 miles, there and back), the route would be suitable for most wheelchairs and pushchairs. The remainder of the full route follows a broken tarmac and compacted stone track (which can have some shallow surface mud and some pot holes) with an estimated maximum gradient of 1:8 or 12.5%. This full route would be suitable for rugged pushchairs and rugged disability buggies for most of the year. Breakfree Surface and Slope Ratings A2 (shorter version) and B4 (full version). Allow 1 to 1.5 hours.
There is one bench along the route (alongside the cemetery). If you are looking for refreshments, you will find Terrington Village Stores and Tea Rooms (which has indoor and outdoor tables) just 50 metres from the start of the walk. If you wish to extend your day out, Yorkshire Lavender is located just 0.5 miles west of Terrington village. This walk follows public rights of way through public and private land. Please show respect for landowners and other visitors and remember the Countryside Code. OS Explorer Map 300: Howardian Hills and Malton.
Terrington is located about 4 miles west of Malton in North Yorkshire. The walk starts and finishes at the junction between the main street through Terrington and Mowthorpe Lane. This junction is between the village stores and Terrington Hall School. If you are coming by public transport, there is a bus stop outside the village stores. If you are coming by car, roadside parking is available along the main street through Terrington. Approximate post code YO60 6PP.
|Start to Cemetery|
Start point: 54.1274 lat, -0.9741 long
From the main village road, take the side road marked as Mowthorpe Lane and signed to the village hall. This is usually a quiet road, being a no through road, however do take care of any occasional traffic. Follow the lane as it bends left, leading you between the stone properties of Terrington village. From this point there is a narrow footpath (about 0.4m wide) within the grass verge on your right, should any members of your party wish to use it, however you will notice plenty of walkers using the lane itself.
|Cemetery to Blind Summit|
Start point: 54.1231 lat, -0.9712 long
The narrow footpath within the grass verge ends here, so all your party will need to join the lane at this point. Keep ahead along the lane and you will notice the tranquillity increasing as you leave the village behind. Beyond the cemetery, you will have hedgerows and open fields on both sides. Beautiful far-reaching views also begin to open up.
|Blind Summit to Turning Point|
Start point: 54.118 lat, -0.9661 long
For the full route, continue ahead on the main lane, passing the entrance for Primrose Hill Farmhouse on your right. Stay with the lane as it bears right then left, signed as a bridleway to Brandrith Farm. At the next junction, ignore the footpath signed right to Mowthorpe Hill, instead keep straight ahead on the track, signed as a farm access road.
|Turning Point to End|
Start point: 54.1125 lat, -0.9583 long
Now it is simply a case of re-tracing your steps back to the village. Follow Mowthorpe Lane back the way you came, ignoring any other paths and tracks to the side.

Beautiful far-reaching views at the furthest point of the walk.
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!
