Description
  • Starting from Millington Wood Local Nature Reserve, turn left onto the road and almost immediately go through a gate to your left.
  • Climb up the bridleway to the second gate.  Instead of going through the gate, turn right and follow the fence line along the edge of Millington Dale to Allison Nab.  Just before Snever Dale turn and descend into the valley, and turn southwards.  Continue to the road and turn left along it.
  • On your right you see a path into Nettle Dale which climbs up the hillside along the Wolds Way route.  Pass the ancient earthworks before dropping down into Sylvan Dale.  Turn right, cross the footbridge over the stream and, turning left along the road, return to your start.
