walking to protect our local countryside

After a few days of heavy rain, a very pleasant morning at Kirkbymoorside for 10 members embarking upon the 12.5 miles, Stage 4 of the Yorkshire Castles Way.

Led by Tony Corrigan the group left Kirkbymoorside, passing the remains of Neville Castle. The largest is the wall fragment standing to the west of the path that leads from the end of Castlegate Lane along the side of Manor Vale.

Continuing on to Gillamoor for a brief stop at the viewing point, then across to Fadmoor and a descent into Mell Bank Wood to reach Skiplam Grange and a lunch stop.

Resuming, the route dropped down to Nawton before heading uphill and across to Pockley Village. This was followed by a descent into and an ascent out of Riccal Dale Wood, followed by the final couple of miles across fields to finish at Helmsley Castle.
