East Yorkshire and Derwent Area Ramblers

walking to protect our local countryside

A chilly morning at the Hole of Horcum for 22 members eager to commence Stage 6 of the Yorkshire Castles Way.

With Pickering as a destination and distance of about 11 miles ahead of them, Leader Sarah Anderson set off on a route across to Skelton Tower. After a quick coffee stop it was through Levisham Wood, negotiating many areas of mud before reaching Farwath crossing.

Following a steep woodland climb to High Blansby the remainder of the route was on pleasant tracks downhill through Featherhaugh Wood to Lowther House Tea Room, near Newbridge crossing. This was a pre arranged tea room stop new to Pocklington Ramblers and is highly recommended.

Resuming, the final mile was into Pickering to see the Castle.
