North Yorkshire

Route: Hackness

Area: North Yorkshire

Date of walk: 17th March 2017

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 3.0 miles

Weather: overcast, dull, cold and windy

We were staying at Derwent View in Hackness and from there we walked along the footpath towards the village hall. Anyone not staying at the cottage could start the walk from the village hall, which is situated at the junction of the road from Forge Valley into Hackness

After passing by Mill Farm we left the road to follow a public footpath sign leading us uphill through a field and then along the edge of Walker Flat Wood. There are lovely views back over Hackness and the surrounding countryside from the path and even better views later on when it passes above Hackness Hall and St Peter’s Church. Unfortunately the weather was very dull and insipid today and these weren’t shown off at their best

After walking past the hall we descended to the roadside and walked back into the village, calling in to St Peter’s Church along the way

This is a short and undemanding walk, but it provides a good introduction to the charms of this unspoilt little village
