A circular from Ingleby GreenhowM017
- A walk in the forest
- Set against the backdrop of Battersby Moor
- Choose your own route in the valley
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.
