Lands above Hutton le Hole

  • Walk linking two pretty villages
  • Great views over the moors
  • Short enough for anyone to enjoy

Hutton-le-Hole and nearby Lastingham are exceptionally attractive villages lying to the north of Kirkbymoorside and lie at the foot of the high moors. I have tried to devise a walk which links the two villages offering as much variety as possible and hopefully this one does. To the north the moors are peppered with sheep and deeply chiselled rivers, to the south farmland dominates.However it is this section I enjoy most; not for the nearby land but more for the tremendous views over both villages to the vast expanse of open moorland stretching away to the north. It is a short walk and most should be able to complete it and get to know this part of the North York Moors.

Recommend: It is possible to extend the walk into the moors by visiting Spaunton Know.l
