The Kilburn white horse from Beacon Banks
The Kilburn white horse from Beacon Banks
This morning was warm and bright, just right for a walk but both my friend and I had things to do this afternoon so we opted for a very pleasant two hour local walk. We drove the few miles to the village of Husthwaite to start our walk. We set off from map ref. SE 522749 following the path along Beacon Banks. This little ridge gives a good view over to the Kilburn white horse. We continued to the muddy lane at High Leys farm and took the path from the farm across the fields to the road just before Coxwold, map ref. SE 533767. It's a pretty village with wide green verges. We left the village on the path that begins at map ref. SE 532772 and followed it across the fields to the road near Angram Hall (a poultry farm) at map ref. SE 514761. We walked along the road for a few hundred metres and took the path up the hill from map ref. SE 518756 back to the village. The walk had been about 7km and took us just over two hours including a short stop for a cup of tea in Coxwold.
