People told me how much they enjoyed Walk 1150, but that it was just too long. So here's a shorter version, but which still retains the best bit - the stretch along The Cliff from Julian's Bower. Just for variety, this walk runs the other way round.
The Cliff is a high limestone edge which plunges steeply into the River Trent at the edge of the Vale of York. On a clear day, you can see all across the perfectly flat Vale to the Derbyshire Peaks, the Pennines, the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Wolds and the other way to the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Starting at the Picnic Place just outside Burton-upon-Stather, a good track takes us to the little village of Coleby. From here, another good track and a stretch along a quiet lane takes us back to Alkborough. After an optional visit to Julian's Bower with its turf maze, the path takes us along The Cliff back to Burton-upon-Stather. Deer are regularly spotted along the open section.

I enjoyed this walk on a clear Spring day, and the views were spectacular! Don't go after heavy rain though.
