A pleasant 11 km walk through fields and quiet lanes to the Hoober Stand folly, near Wentworth, South Yorkshire. This is open in the summertime on Sunday afternoons (small fee) and gives views over the surrounding countryside.

The walk passes through the small hamlet of Hoober, with quaint cottages and farms and offers good views and good footpaths. Rockingham Pottery kiln is near the start and finish point and is well worth a visit.

There are grassed areas at the start and at Hoober Stand; there is also a pub and convenience store near the start and finish. There are no toilets en route.
There are some tarmacked, quiet lanes, total approx 3 Km.
