Description
  • From the cross in Main Street walk along Cross Lane for about 150 yards to enter Manor Green.  Almost immediately follow a footpath which leads to South Townside Road.
  • Continue straight on until you reach Mount Pleasant Road where the route turns southward.  Walk as far as Mount Pleasant Farm to turn right along Cross Road, to arrive again at Cross Lane (the road to Brandesburton).
  • Turn left to a footpath on your right which leads to Coneygarth Hill.  Skirt around the farm and then turn northward to return along field paths to Howes Lane.
  • After about 200 yards take a fieldside path.  This will allow you to walk back to the start via Church Lane and Main Street.
