This part of the Vale of Pickering is dominated by arable farming. The footpaths and bridleways are rarely walked, so expect some to be overgrown but still to be quite passable at the height of summer. As you walk by the River Seven you realize the height of the banks gives some clue as to the amount of water carried by the river during storm conditions. Indeed, the village of Normanby has flooded in recent years with flood banks having to be built to protect property and land. At one time the strip village was the main coaching and haulage route from Humberside to Teesside; in those days it had fourteen ale-houses; now it has one, The Sun Inn. The road is still the shortest route between the market towns of Malton and Kirkbymoorside.

The walk affords excellent views of the North York Moors, the Howardian Hills AONB and Yorkshire Wolds on clear days.
