A circular walk of slightly over 3 miles in East Yorkshire that climbs gently through woodland to Welton Wold and returns along the dry valley of Welton Dale. The village has many interesting features that you can read about on the display board near the start of the walk. Local folklore states that Dick Turpin was arrested here in Welton, before trial and execution in York.

The paths are generally wide with good surfaces but the short section at the furthest point may be muddy and difficult after rain. This section could be avoided by using the concrete farm road that runs parallel to the footpath/bridleway here. There are three kissing gates, but no stiles on the walk. The Dale is used for livestock, which mostly keeps to the valley sides rather than the bottom. Allow 1.5 hours.

The village of Welton, lies just north of the A63, 11 miles west of Hull. The centre of the village has post code HU15 1NB. Roadside parking is available opposite the pub on 'The Green' or along 'Cowgate', the main road through the village.

Walk along Cowgate, slightly uphill, with the church on your right-hand side. At the junction where Kidd Lane goes sharp left, Dale Road lies straight ahead, from which we will return at the end of the walk. To the right of Dale Road is Chapel Hill which we follow for this outward leg. A signpost on the small green marks our route as 'Yorkshire Wolds Way N. Ferriby 2 mls'. A short way up Chapel Hill we leave the village behind and walk along the edge of a wood. Views to the left are mostly obscured but keep an eye open for a gap where a short diversion off the path gives wide views over the Dale to the Humber Estuary. Keep uphill, ignoring signposts leading to the right, until the path turns left at a disused metal kissing gate. The footpath has been diverted here to allow expansion of the chalk quarry.

Pass by the disused kissing gate and follow the path by the fence. After a short while, the path turns right following the fence on your right with woodland to the left. Continue until you emerge from the wood to a field side path. At the end of the field the path continues through a short wooded section to arrive at a concrete farm road.

Cross the concrete road to reach the footpath, beyond the hedge, turning left to follow it downhill (this path may be muddy). Ignore a footpath to the right and continue to the bottom. Look for a signpost pointing left, back across the concrete road, to a wooden kissing gate. Pass through the gate to enter woodland on a gently descending path. This path leads to a metal kissing gate and Welton Dale.

The dry valley of Welton Dale is a livestock field where you may find sheep and cattle. Follow the bottom of the valley as it curves and falls gently to go through another metal kissing gate. Pass a cottage on your left to reach a road which will lead you back to the village where the walk began. On the left you will see a pond and water course. This water flows underground on reaching housing, reappearing in the village as a narrow stream alongside the church. The stream widens round the church (as seen in the picture for the first walk section).
