Langdale End walk, Hackness

Langdale End

North York Moors

Route: Hackness to Langdale End and back

Area: North York Moors

Date of walk: 30th November 2014

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 8.3 miles

Weather: overcast and dull

We parked at Derwent View Hackness – anyone not staying at the cottage will find plenty of parking elsewhere in the village. We walked out of the village along Mowthorp Road and after a short distance left the road to cross the River Derwent over a wooden footbridge

After walking through Wrench Green we climbed uphill along Lang Gate before turning off along a track which took us to the oddly named Mount Misery. We descended to the Troutsdale Road and then had another up and down before arriving in Langdale End

The Moorcock Inn in Langdale End was serving Sunday lunch though we had to knock on the door to gain admittance. The Inn is well worth a visit, though it’s opening times are erratic – it hasn’t changed for decades and it feels as if you’re having a drink in someone’s front room. We really enjoyed our time there and after settling our bill with cash (debit and credit cards aren’t accepted), we walked back along the road for a short distance before climbing up Broxa Banks to the little village of Broxa

The last leg of the journey was along Broxa Rigg and near the end of the Rigg we descended through Chapman Banks Wood back to the start
