I'm keen to promote walking in the Howardian Hills AONB - especially so now that I am the Ramblers Delegate on the Joint Advisory Committee for the AONB itself. This walk starts from the well-serviced village of Hovingham, which has pubs, cafes and a bakery. There is also a popular monthly village market held on the first Saturday each month. This walk is relatively dog-friendly, with only two stiles to climb.

An easy ascent takes us up on to Caukleys Bank, a 3km-long, 100m high soil ridge which ends in rock at Stonegrave. The bridleway which runs over it is popular with horseriders, dog-walkers and ramblers. This walk can be lengthened to 13.5km in length by adding most of Walk 7631. If you do that you will pass through Nunnington (with pub and NT stately home); however, you will miss out on some of the far-reaching views along the full length of Caukleys Bank.
