  • From Harpham more fieldpaths head to Burton Agnes where Rudston Road will take you to the Roman Road known as Woldgate.  (This ancient lane is thought to be much older than Roman - believed to have been used in prehistoric times as part of a flint trade route linking Ireland with Continental Europe.)
  • From Woldgate a bridleway heads past Duesberry Plantation to Kilham Lane where we turn right to Rudston.
