Description
  • Leave the Leisure Complex by turning right from the main entrance onto Flemingate.  After 150 yards turn right again onto Spark Mill Lane.  Continue over the drain to a T-junction, turning right onto a bridleway past Cherry Tree Cottage.  Remain on the main track.  Swing right to cross the railway line with care, and then take in further bends to reach Long Lane. 
  • Turn left along the road and then turn right into Willow Lane.  Go past the caravan site and you will reach a stile at the housing estate.  Turn left to follow the drain bank through a small copse and to reach a stile and wooden bridge. 
  • Continue southeast alongside the drain on the field edge.  Where the drain turns right cross over the field using a wooden bridge to reach a corner of Shepherd Lane.  In the same direction pass Old Hall Farm.  Turn right (southwest) to pass through Model Farm.  
  • At the next field junction the track turns left and then crosses over a main road (Beverley bypass).  Immediately over the bypass, turn right down a field edge bridleway past trees.  Next, bear left away from the bypass to a broad farm track.  Follow this ahead to the main road (A164).  Cross very carefully and walk ahead through the village of Bentley to reach a corner of the road to Walkington. 
  • Walk carefully ahead and you will touch on the main route when it joins from Fishponds Wood.  Turn right and remain alongside the road towards Walkington to reach Bentley Park Farm and the main route to the finish.  Turn left onto Moor Lane, a track which runs alongside a plantation to a kissing gate on the left. 
  • The field edge ahead leads to another gate and then goes downhill to a stile.  Continue in the same direction for another few steps and then follow a further field edge to a stile and a path running through bushes and trees.
  • Turn left and then right up to the main Beverley-Walkington road.  Turn right to go over the bypass, and then immediately cross the road to a stony track alongside the bypass.  Where this levels out, take the footpath to the right, following a long field edge.
  • A gap at the end leads over a stile onto the open common land (Westwood).  Turn immediately right and, with the hedge on your right, go over a small hill.  Next take a long slope (with the golf course to your left) to reach Walkington Road.  Turn left around the back of the green towards Beverley, staying to the left of the road.
  • Bear left at the Y-junction.  Cross the minor road after 100 yards to pick up a green path down the centre of the triangular grassy area, and to leave the Westwood at the kissing gate.  Take the footpath ahead alongside the Minster School to reach a corner of Ellerker Road. 
  • Turn right and then left down Central Avenue.  Go across the Leases and walk down to the main road.  With care, cross over a triangular green to enter Minster Moorgate.  Pass the Minster into Eastgate.  Turn right and follow the road into Flemingate to return to the Leisure Complex.

Features of Interest
-  This route was devised by members of the Beverley Athletic Club as a cross-country running route.  It is doubtful that they had time to spot any features of interest 'en route'.  However, if you walk in spring you will find the countryside to the south of Beverley entrancing with its wildflowers and birdsong.
