A circular from Ingleby Greenhow

  • A walk in the forest
  • Set against the backdrop of Battersby Moor
  • Choose your own route in the valley


Picture 1 of 6

Battersby Moor towers over the 11th century village of Ingleby Greenhow but I chose to keep low on this walk and explore the valley and forestry under the moors. The wide forestry tracks provided easy walking and the sound of wood cutting did a little bit destroy the peace but it was a pleasant autumnal day when I set out with Mist. Ingleby Manor could not be spotted but the pretty farmhouses, particularly Shepherd’s Close, gave the valley a more tranquil and laid back feel than the dense forestry would have you believe possible. It is a place to discover your own route, you are trapped in the valley so cannot go far wrong and you know a pleasant pint at the Dudley Arms will await you at the end.

Recommend:  Explore St Andrew’s Church, the low Norman design is unusual in this area.

Start Point: ?? 582063. Park near the Dudley Arms and walk east through the village before taking the land towards Bank Foot
Height to Climb: 160 ms (525 feet)
Terrain: Forestry tracks/roads, which can become muddy but clear, are the basis of the walk but the non forestry path from New Sheepfold to West Farm I found difficult!
Eating & Drinking: The Dudley Arms is currently being refurbished (Oct 2012) and will hopefully now add quality to its undoubted character
