The River Dove begins its life north of the walk in Farndale before heading south through Dowthwaite Dale to join the River Rye near Salton. This walk explores the wooded valley between the villages of Gillamoor and Keldholme.

We take the permissive track down to the weir south of Youdwath before heading north through woodland and on field-paths to skirt Gillamoor, which still has a pub with accommodation, The Royal Oak Inn. We then use part of the 48-mile-long Tabular Hills Walk to take us to Hutton-le-Hole, with its world-famous Ryedale Folk Museum, pictured. This is the home of The Harrison Collection.

Another permissive track and a footpath south of the village take us back to the start point. It is possible to join the route anywhere along it, providing car parking can be found. Gillamoor or Hutton-le-Hole itself would both serve well as starting points.

Enjoyed this walk at Easter 2012, we were staying in Kirbymoorside so walked up to join between waymarks 4 & 5. Height gain is not excessive but you do the climbing 4 times during the walk so it adds up to a good stretch. Generally dog friendly, except for a couple of stiles, although you cross some fields which may have cattle in later in the year. At waymark 12 I would add that on reaching the road turn left and the car park is 150m on your right, the map is correct but I turned right first time and had to back track.
