A short 2 mile circular walk from the village of Elloughton onto the Yorkshire Wolds. Leave behind the rush of traffic on the A63 to reach a grand viewpoint over the Humber Estuary. The walk follows good paths with clear waymarking. There are several gates and kissing gates, easily passed through, plus some shallow steps but there are no stiles to climb. The gradients are mostly gentle rises and falls but there is one steep descent and one stiff climb. Horses are sometimes in the final fields. Allow 1hr without stops, but longer to enjoy the views.

Elloughton lies south of the A63 and is reached from the west by exiting at South Cave, or from the east by exiting at Welton. At the crossroads in Elloughton, turn towards Brantingham on Main Street where roadside parking is available. Be aware that a small section of parking has a limited wait time of 1 hour. Time may be well spent reading the history of Elloughton on the display board next to local notices on the wall. Approximate post code HU15 1HU.

Start point: 53.7415 lat, -0.5674 long
End point: 53.743 lat, -0.5621 long

From the crossroads in the centre of Elloughton, walk north along Main Street, passing between the United Reformed Church on your right and the pub on your left. Where the road bears left to become Brantingham Road, turn right onto the dead-end branch of Main Street, towards the busy A63. Follow it and cross the footbridge over the busy road (using the gently sloping stairs). This is not a place to linger, but beyond is the relative peace of the Wolds.

Once over the bridge follow the road ahead, using a pavement on the right, until another road enters from the right. Swap to the left side pavement and walk ahead to the sharp left-hand bend. Ignore the footpath signed to your right here (you return that way later) and follow the road left. Where the road bends to the right, go straight ahead to a gate.

Once through the gate, follow a wide bridleway that rises gently. Views to the left are often hidden behind hedges, so take the opportunity to stop at gaps to take in the scene. At the top of the rise follow the path right to a metal gate and kissing gate.

End point: 53.7499 lat, -0.5593 long

Go through the gate and your path enters a wood, still a bridleway, and continues to rise gently, passing through another gate. On reaching a wooden fence the bridleway ends and you pass through another kissing gate, turning left, and then immediately to the right is a wooden kissing gate with footpath sign to Welton.

End point: 53.7482 lat, -0.5562 long

Follow the path signed to Welton, which descends steeply. At the bottom, the path widens and bends gently to the right. Follow ahead until you reach the road. Cross the road carefully, bearing diagonally left to a wooden kissing gate.

Start point: 53.7482 lat, -0.5562 long
End point: 53.7477 lat, -0.5519 long

Go through the gate and your path rises steeply, curving gently through the wood. At the top of the rise the path splits. Take the narrower, right-hand path. On reaching a path crossing your path, turn right to reach a wooden kissing gate, through which you exit the wood.

Start point: 53.7477 lat, -0.5519 long
End point: 53.7424 lat, -0.5612 long

Note that horses are sometimes grazing in this field. The high point of the walk has been reached and views open up to the Humber Estuary and south to Lincolnshire. A short way along the path is a seat from which the view can be taken in. Follow the field path as it gently descends along the top edge of the field. Pass through a kissing gate into a second field and follow the path leading you down to the road.

You are now at the footpath sign passed earlier and can retrace your steps ahead along Dale Road and back across the A63 bridge into Elloughton where the walk began.
