This walk is packed with variety and interest. If using the bus either from the direction of Scarborough or Helmsley, the views are really lovely. Then, dismounting in Sinnington feels like another world, away from noisy traffic and nowhere to go but into the countryside. Follow the River Seven through woods and meadows and then join the Tabular Hills Walk over the river, past a charcoal-burning operation and into Appleton-le-Moors. This village dates back to medieval times, as can be seen by the traditional layout. Follow the Tabular Hills Walk along lanes, on paths across fields and through woods. There are views across to the moors and to the south, the Vale of Pickering and Yorkshire Wolds. There are areas, especially after rain, where there are deep puddles and mud, but it is possible to skirt around them.

Hutton-le Hole is well worth a visit, with its museum, cafés, pubs and giftshops. OK, it's touristy, but so pretty it is not difficult to see why it is so popular. Take care when walking along the road away from here, but when the verges widen it is possible to avoid the traffic. Then follows a pleasant walk into Kirkbymoorside. Of particular interest is Ravenswick. The footbridge crosses by a weir and a disused mill. The sluicegate workings can be seen close by. The mill buildings are derelict, but it is possible to imagine the past industry. Pass by some impressive buildings before turning onto footpaths which lead to the church and bus stop in Kirkbymoorside.
