This is a walk we’ve done many times and it never fails to please – it provides a perfect example of rolling East Yorkshire Wolds countryside

We parked on the roadside verge of the estate road leading to Drewton Manor. The landowners kindly permit this as long as care is taken to park considerately. We walked past the manor house and, just beyond it, we left the road and crossed Drewton Beck. There then follows a gradual climb up to the top of the wold. There were extensive, though rather hazy, views over miles of open countryside as we made our way above Austin’s Dale

Near the top of the wold there’s a short section beside the busy B1320. The road can be kept behind a hedge by following an informal path along the edge of a field – this obscures the view of the traffic, but not the sound. In any event the road section only lasts for a couple of minutes before the start of the return leg above the other side of Austin’s Dale

After enjoying some more big views we gradually descended back into Drewton Dale, eventually reaching the estate road and from here we retraced our steps back to the start. For anyone following this walk, a visit to the nearby Drewton’s Farm Shop is highly recommended
