Distance: 3.3 miles

Ascent: 400 feet

Weather: Cloudy with some light rain, becoming brighter later

The pretty village of Terrington in the Howardian Hills is a good starting point for a variety of walks. We’d drawn up a short list of 4 but by the time we arrived in the early afternoon there was only time for the shortest one, as we intended to visit Castle Howard later on

We parked in the village hall car park and passed past the church, leaving the village behind us as we walked beside the school cricket field to enter gentle rolling arable countryside. It started raining at this point but luckily the rain soon passed over and conditions improved

We joined a path beside Wath Beck for a while and then started the return leg across the fields, with lovely views across the surrounding countryside

All too soon we arrived back in Terrington with our appetites whetted for a longer walk in this area. The day was not over though and once back at the start we drove over to nearby Castle Howard – click here for that walk
