Description
  • The 2001 census records that the population of the tiny village of Newton upon Derwent was 202.
  • From the Half Moon inn, walk in a southerly direction along the main street until it joins the main road ('Back o' Newton').
  • Turn right, and after just over 100 yards turn right, along the St Lois Farm road.
  • Near the northeastern corner of Sutton Wood, turn left and follow the wood side as far as the track at the southern end.
  • Turn right, pass along the path inside the wood, and enter the field across a footbridge.
  • Walk to the far left-hand corner of the field and turn in a northerly direction along the River Derwent bank.
  • Pass by the Elvington Water Extraction Works on the opposite bank, and continue along the path by St Lois Farm.
  • Carry on northwards along the riverside until you reach a tree-lined hollow in Mask Brow.
  • Turn away from the river along a track known as Mask Lane.
  • The lane makes a beeline to the northern end of the village, where you follow the street back to the start.
