Stonegrave & the Rye

  • Two idyllic Yorkshire villages
  • Good riverside walking
  • Outstanding views from Caulkleys Bank

There is so much to this walk it is actually difficult to do it justice. At no stage did I feel that nothing was changing or I was getting a little bored. The views from the wonderful ‘green road’ on Caulkleys Bank are excellent, particularly over Helmsley towards the North York Moors, as is the riverside walking on either side of Nunnington. However it is the section round Stonegrave and its church which impressed me most, the path dropping steeply down the bank and hitting the pretty village head on. Nunnington is also immaculate and although I did not go inside the Hall (it is open to the public) it has an enviable situation and is a splendid looking building

Recommend: Do not cut any corners on the walk and spend some time dawdling along Caukleys Bank and through the villages.
