Description
  • Go down the hill at the Sports Centre and turn right at the bottom onto Church Street.  Walk on until you reach the main road.  Use the zebra crossing to the left of the road end to cross this main road.  Continue in a straight line (passing Highfields on your right) until you reach a track approximately 150 metres to your right.  Continue walking on the path until you reach another path where you can turn left or right.
  • Follow the next set of instructions to return directly to the Sports Centre.  If you want a longer route back to the start follow 'route extension' below.
  • Turn left and you will see fields on both sides of the path. 
  • Walk on until you reach Steep Hill.  Turn left to enter onto Beverley Road.  Walk on, and turn off the road when you reach Market Place (the main road running through South Cave).  This part of the route is town-based with houses on both sides of the footpath.
  • When you reach the zebra crossing, cross the road and head back to the Sports Centre.  (You will see a butcher's shop on your left if you are going the right way!).  Turn left up the hill until you reach the Sports Centre.

Route extension

  • To extend your walk turn right at the bottom of the path and continue along the footpath in the shape of a square.  You will see Great Wold Plantation and Mount Airy Farm before joining Steep Hill.  To return to the Sports Centre follow the instructions above, starting from "Turn left to enter onto Beverley Road...".
