Our walk starts in East Yorkshire in the historic estate village of Kirby Underdale, which is mentioned in the Domesday Book. We walk through All Saints Churchyard before hiking along miles of excellent gated field-paths. The route affords far-reaching views from south to north-west. Most field boundaries are crossed via gates, so there are few stiles.

Thank you for your observations Brian and I'm glad you enjoyed the walk - I remember it well. I have updated my notes against waymarks 09 and 10 to make route finding clearer. Kind regards Phil Catterall

We walked this route on Friday 21 September 2018. The instructions were generally easy to follow and views are excellent. We had one wrong turn with the instructions at waymark 9. The instructions at weymark 8 state to turn right onto a waymarked footpath to reach waymark 9. The instructions should say turn left which then corresponds to the map.

We walked this route yesterday - it is excellent passing through great countryside with no noise pollution. Unfortunately the route appears to be little used and the paths not maintained. On several occasions we had to force our way along field boundaries between shoulder high rape on one side and hedgerow vegetation on the other. Whilst the directions are generally accurate there have been changes and without a good GPS outfit and map we would not have found our way around. A portion of the walk follows the Chalkland Way. We found one sign announcing the presence of the Chalkland Way and instructing us to follow the waymarks. We found none. The marked path from waypoint 4 to 5 is difficult and dangerous and the instructions quite rightly suggest an alternative route. Without the assistance of a GPS device we would not have found the stile or bridge at waypoint 6. The path is wholly unmarked and unidentifiable. We had to force our way through bushes and undergrowth to reach the stile and bridge. The nature of the countryside made this walk a truly great experience - but why are the paths so neglected? In particular why is The Chalkland Way not maintained and signposted in the way that other similar routes are?
