A 7.5 mile circular walk from the village of Burton Agnes in East Yorkshire. This is a great walk if you have a well-behaved dog, as most of it can be done off-lead through fields and along quiet paths. There’s also a great opportunity for a paddle half way round in a beck with a path next to it. It is pretty flat, but does have lovely views of the Yorkshire Wolds and the pretty villages along the route.

The terrain is relatively flat, with only a few gentle slopes. The field paths and unmade tracks can be very muddy after periods of rain or in winter. The paths across arable fields will vary depending on the season, so remember you may need to cross ploughed fields or pass through dense crops. The waymarking is intermittent (with several waymarkers having disappeared since the original directions were created) so the App’s live GPS map will be very helpful with navigation. You will need to negotiate several gates plus 5 stiles (one of which all dogs may need a hand over and another one of which larger dogs may also need a lift). There may be electric fences alongside one part of the route, so be careful with children and dogs. Allow 3.5 hours.

Burton Agnes is on the A614 approximately half-way between Driffield and Bridlington. From York take the A166 to Driffield then join the A614 following the signs to Bridlington. Roadside parking is available by the pond next to Station Road, in the centre of the village, just off the A614. Approximate post code YO25 4NH. If you are coming by public transport, Bus 121 from Scarborough via Bridlington, Driffield and Beverley to Hull stops at Burton Agnes, as does Bus 744 from York and Pocklington. Both are operated by East Yorkshire Motor Services.

From the village pond in Burton Agnes, not far away from Burton Agnes Hall head back towards the main road then turn left along the grass verge towards the Blue Bell Hotel. At the hotel cross the road and head along the road opposite, signposted to Rudston along the Yorkshire Wolds Cycle route No.1.

Follow the footpath next to the quiet road, passing the Burton Agnes C of E Primary School and Nursery. Shortly after passing a sports club, turn left through a hedge gap to join a footpath. Follow this path along the edge the crop field with the fenced football field immediately on your left.

Path Alongside Sportsfield to Sandy Lane

Start point: 54.055 lat, -0.3214 long
End point: 54.0558 lat, -0.3408 long

The path is wide, obvious and grassy; continue on ahead past the end of the fence (through the centre of the field) heading towards a gap in the hedge in front. As the path starts to rise a little, the main road is visible to the left along with some wind-turbines in the distance beyond. Pass through the gap in the hedge into the next field, and follow the still obvious path diagonally, slightly uphill.

At a yellow waymarker post next to a hedge, continue diagonally across the next field. All around are wide open spaces with great views of the Yorkshire Wolds. Head towards a metal gate in the hedge and pass through the gap between two posts onto a wide track called Sandy Lane.

Start point: 54.0558 lat, -0.3408 long
End point: 54.0619 lat, -0.3642 long

Cross this track and continue through a gap in the hedge on the other side on to an undulating path leading diagonally across the field towards the hedge line. Climb the stile in the hedgerow (little dogs should be able to go under but bigger breeds may need a helping hand). Once over the stile look in front and to the right across the field for a gate and head towards it. The path runs diagonally across the field but it may be hard to spot, in which case head right and then left around the field edges instead.

Pass through a waymarked kissing gate and continue diagonally across the next field towards the houses and church of the village of Kilham. At the end of this field pass through a gap in the Hawthorne hedge and again head diagonally across the next one towards a public footpath sign at a gap in the hedge. Turn left onto a track leading to a tarmac road, and follow it downhill to the right.

After a short distance, look out for a wooden footpath sign pointing left and follow this path along the edge of a field, keeping the wire and post fence to the left. Keep ahead on the path ignoring the one to the right, and pass by the sewage works with its green palisade fencing.

Sewage Works to Bracey Bridge

Start point: 54.0619 lat, -0.3642 long
End point: 54.0427 lat, -0.3571 long

The path becomes a wide green track with a beck to the right and Kilham Church visible in front. Pass between two posts then, soon after, turn sharp left and head up a gentle bank to a marked track across a field. Following the waymarker on a stump by a gap in the hedge, continue along the clear path across several fields. Keep following the waymarkers through the gaps in the hedges along the easy to follow path.

After leaving the last field, follow the path towards a distinctive line of tall trees. Keep the trees to the left and follow the path around them towards a road. Carefully cross the road then head down the steps at the other side to the Bracey Bridge picnic area, which makes a good spot for tea and buns! There are also dog waste bins here.

Head past the picnic tables and cross the lay-by road, looking for a waymarked kissing gate next to a double metal gate. Pass through onto the tarmac track and follow it. After a short while follow the public footpath sign pointing right onto an unmade track towards a large metal gate, next to a waymarked kissing gate. Pass through the kissing gate and continue straight ahead along the wide grassy path keeping the hedgerow to the right.

Go through another waymarked kissing gate and follow the footpath sign towards Low Thorpe. Head across the field and at a kissing gate in the hedge at the other side, follow a waymarker to the left through another kissing gate out on to a track. Continue over the bridge at Low Thorpe Beck – there are good paddling opportunities here, and access is easy from the beck side footpath.

Keep ahead past the farm buildings and follow the blue waymarker posts through a number of gates. At the end of the lane turn right on to a quiet road leading to the village of Harpham with its church.

After passing in front of (or popping into!) the St Quintin Arms, turn left at a crossroads following the sign for Bridlington. After a short while turn right initially onto an enclosed path, then follow a waymarked public footpath sign over a stile. Follow the yellow arrow along a clear path across a field towards a gap in a hedge. After passing another waymarker arrow, continue in the same direction towards another marker post by a gap in a hedge with a broken stile.

Follow the clear path across the next field towards the hedge line with Burton Agnes in the distance. Follow the waymarkers and bear right along the left-hand edge of a field – keeping a look out for the next waymarker post in a gap in the fence pointing to the left. Head diagonally along the clear path through the field towards the red roofs of Burton Agnes.

Cross over a bridge made of two planks of wood over a beck and a stile (some dogs will get through the gap but others may need a hand). Cross another stile over a wire and post fence (all dogs should easily get under this one) then head diagonally across the next field on the clear path towards the village. Cross another stile and turn right onto the road and head back to the village pond.

Enjoyable walk, mostly flat, the tracking on the gps is very accurate there are plenty of places where you can take your dog off the lead.

Enjoyable walk, a few of the signs missing and where gaps in hedge these need cutting back as they are starting to close up.
