This walk starts and finishes in Hutton-le-Hole, a delightful and interesting moors village. If you don't feel like walking you could spend all day here, just wandering around and visiting the open-air Rydale Folk Museum where you are transported back in time as far back as Viking days. Try and make a weekend of your visit and do both!

Once you manage to leave Hutton-le-Hole, start by walking onto the moors and up to an ancient stone cross, from where you can enjoy excellent views all around. Then drop down to Lastingham, another interesting village and good place to stop for lunch. While here, you ought to visit the church and go down into the interesting crypt, built in Norman times.

The final stage is fairly easy to follow, on bridleways through varying countryside, with plenty of wildlife to view. There are several picnic spots along the way and pubs in each village.

A nice walk easy to follow directions and well signposted. Felt a long way but no major hills we enjoyed a few drinks along the way at the pubs I would do this walk again.
