This is a quiet walk in farming country. It is a route with very few gradients and on generally easy terrain. There are some pleasant views across some regrettably large fields and an ostrich farm halfway.

At waypoint 24 the farmer has stopped access to the second stile by putting electric fencing either side of it, we had our dog with us and whilst stood there deliberating which alternative route to take he caught his nose on the fence and got a terrible electric shock as did my husband who was holding him on a lead, not impressed with the farmer and he should be reported as it is a public footpath. There was also another gate blocked by an electric fence in the next field. Apart from these two incidents it was a lovely walk but definitely not dog friendly due to the electric fences.

This walk is a perfect example of why comments need to be on the walk description page: a pub said to be closed, that a recent comment says is, in fact, open and a path blocked.

Path from Grove section 23 was impassable. Had to retrace our steps back to section 20, then turn left onto Grove Road (careful here, fast traffic) then pick up section 25. Also pub at Askham has reopened.

Could not use path from grove due to no path. Made through oil seed rape field. Not sure on the rules regarding access as all other path were well accessed.
