Picture 1 of 6

There is always something going on is a decent summary for this 7 and a half mile walk between the idyllic village of Millington and the larger town of Pocklington. The Yorkshire Wolds Way)joined by the Minster Way and Chalkland Way) is followed for over 3 miles as it climbs on to one of the chalky escarpments that so characterise the Wolds – the views are particularly impressive to the west, York and its flatter Vale. Pocklington Beck is a mere distraction on the return but I would include a detour through the impressive grounds of Kilnwick Percy (now a Buddhist retreat) and certainly spend time exploring both the pub and Walkers tea room in Millington.

Recommend: Beautiful views from the aptly named Rambler’s cafe, nice day, nothing better

    Cracking walk! Takes in some great countryside and beautiful views. Highly recommend! Would also suggest stopping off for a peak inside the Buddhist centre at Kilnwick Percy, something a bit different and unexpected. Is my first of your walks, will be sure to try some more out soon. Many thanks!
