Description
  • From the car park by the Eleanor Cross walk towards the village centre and turn left into Kirby Lane.  Although the next 1.5 miles is along the roadside the views are fine and traffic from Kirby Grindalythe is light.
  • On reaching Crook Plantation turn right along a field edge bridleway to pass Squirrel Hall Farm.
  • At a 'crossroads' of bridleways turn right to pass Thirkleby Wold Farm and drop down into Croome Dale.
  • Walk to the right and take the public footpath opposite Croome Farm (noting the remains of cultivation terraces in the field by Crow Wood).
  • Follow the path as it zigzags around Croome House and the site of the medieval village of Croome to reach the sports ground and the B1253 Bridlington road.
  • Turn right and follow the main street through the village to your choice of refreshment stop - the Sledmere House cafe or the Triton Inn.
