General Directions (see markers on the route map)

1.) Start at the public car park (& toilets) at the northern end of Hutton-le-Hole at map ref. SE705903. From the car park entrance turn right and follow the road northwards for about 100m, then, where the road bends right, keep straight on to follow a public footpath still heading northwards across the moorland for about 1km to join the tarmac access road heading towards Spaunton Lodge. After about 300m along this access road, where it bends to the left keep straight on to follow a public footpath still heading northwards climbing steadily up Hutton Ridge for about 1.4km to map ref. SE704930. Here the path turns right to follow a moorland track. The track drops down to cross a small beck and then climbs up over Loskey Ridge before dropping down to cross another beck (the two becks join together downstream to form Loskey Beck). About 100m before the beck the path leaves the track and after crossing the beck it climbs up through the heather for about 450m to the road from Hutton-le-Hole leading to the village of Rosedale Abbey. At the road turn left and walk along the road for about 700m to the top of Rosedale Chimney Bank.

2.) Before the road begins its steep descent of Rosedale Chimney Bank turn right off the road to follow a moorland track heading south east to Ana Cross, about 700m away along the track. Continue along the moorland track past Ana Cross. About 1.7km further on, where the track has bent round to the right to head southwards, the track passes a tumulus called Abraham‘s Hut. From Abraham‘s Hut continue southwards along the track for about 2.2km to join the access road from High Askew farm.

3.) Follow the access road from High Askew farm continuing southwards to the junction at the public road at map ref. SE743900. From this junction follow the road southwards to Lower Askew farm. Just beyond the farm the road bends right and here keep straight on off the road to follow a public footpath along the field boundary to Scarth Wood. Follow the path through the wood and then along the edge of the fields next to the wood to Appleton Mill Farm.

4.) Just before Appleton Mill Farm turn right to follow the farm access road climbing up the hillside to join the public road after about 900m at map ref. SE738883. Continue along the road to a 'T'-junction on the edge of Appleton-le-Moor. At this junction turn left and walk along the road for about 100m then turn right off the road to follow a fenced track between the fields. Follow this track for about 1.7km as it bends around the field edges to meet another track at map ref. SE718883. At this junction in the tracks turn left and continue along the track around the northern end of Spring Wood and then between the fields dropping down to the road at the southern end of Hutton-le-Hole at map ref. SE706896. Follow the road northwards through Hutton-le-Hole back to the car park and the end of the walk.
