Description
  • This route runs along solid, obvious tracks, so simply carry the map with you to find your way.
  • This walk runs along three different tracks.  You can either take a brisk walk to stretch your legs, or enjoy a slow stroll through the countryside amongst cornfields doing the 'Mexican wave'.
  • Near the walk is Wressle Castle, the only remaining fortified manor house in the region; unfortunately it is not open to the public.
  • You will see the wartime airfield at the Breighton end of your walk.  One of the tracks which you follow eastwards from Breighton is an ancient lane.  It once led from the village to the area of common land where the inhabitants could graze their sheep and cattle.  On Ordnance Survey maps part of this common is called the Outgang.
