Kirby Underdale

East Yorkshire

Route: Bugthorpe and Kirby Underdale

Area: East Yorkshire

Date of walk: 2nd September 2015

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 8.5 miles

Weather: Cloud and sunny intervals

I parked in the quiet and unspoilt village of Bugthorpe, gradually gaining height as I did so, and after a while joined the Chalkland Way. I left this long distance path at Lower Sleights Farm and walked over typical rolling Wolds countryside to Mount Pleasant Farm, the highest point of the walk at just over 400 feet

There were a few more gentle ups and downs before I arrived at the half way point – the quiet village of Kirby Underdale

The return leg to Bugthorpe was across flatter terrain and it was very easy going back to the start, mostly through farmland, following paths alongside hedgerows

There was nothing to set the pulses racing on this walk but the scenery was lovely throughout, and it was quiet – I didn’t see another walker during the whole journey
