East Yorkshire Wolds

Date of walk: 15th February 2013

Walkers: Andrew, Gilly, David and Fiona

Distance: 7.8 miles

Ascent: 1,000 feet

We parked opposite the Gait Inn at Millington for reasons which will become apparent from the final photo. We walked along a quiet lane to join the Wolds Way, which took us along the western ridge of the Wolds with lovely views back over Millington and the Vale of York.

We followed the course of a Roman road for a short distance and then descended to Millington Dale. The route then took us up to the chalk banks of Millington Pastures and Millington Heights (700 feet approx), and finally back down into the village itself at a convenient time to enjoy the hospitality of the Gait Inn.
