This is an easy-walking circular route where without any significant climbs, the walker can enjoy extensive views of the North York Moors and the Howardian Hills. The walk itself starts at the village green of Slingsby, where there are numbers of stone-built cottages. Quiet country lanes and farmland lead on to Barton-le-Street, another picturesque village with a green. Following this, there is a slight incline leading to Coneythorpe Banks Wood, where a panoramic view of the North Yorkshire Moors can be enjoyed. The route follows the Centenary Way path at the edge of the woods and eventually rewards the walker with views of the Howardian Hills and in particular, Castle Howard and its grounds. The descent into Slingsby gives a good view of the remains of the castle which can be viewed once back in Slingsby.

A nice easy walk in this flattish area. As previously stated in another review, the 4 way signpost at wp13 is not there and it's easy to miss this turn. We happened upon another walker who put us right.

Enjoyed this walk and followed directions without a problem until step 13. We only had the descriptive print out and pictures so were unable to check on a map. Unfortunately the picture on step 13 did not bear any resemblance to what we could see. We walked about 1.5 miles further on than we should have done and had to retrace our steps and returned to Slingsby via our own route through Fryton. Not sure what went wrong . Would have been a decent short walk and quite dog friendly with several areas that he could be let off the lead.
