Distance: 4.0 miles

Weather: Mostly sunny 

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 near Drewton’s Farm Shop (it would be a serious omisson to neglect a visit to the excellent shop before or after the walk) and walked along the estate road past Drewton Manor. Just beyond the manor we left the road and crossed Drewton Beck before starting the gradual climb up to the top of the wold. There were fabulous 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
