You are welcome to use this permissive footpath route around arable fields at Huggate with views across the Yorkshire Wolds. It is for the use of walkera and way marks are in place to to guide you around the route. The Eastern loop will be closed for six months of the year to protect gamebirds. Hedges and field margins on the farm are being managed to benefit wildlife, especially farmland birds. Please take care to keep to the route and to avoid disturbing nesting birds along other hedgerows. Please keep your dog on a lead as we are trying to protect important farmland birds such as lapwing, grey partridge and corn bunting.  View the map here



The Yorkshire Wolds present amazing chalk landscapes with dry valleys and stunning wildlife alongside vibrant market towns and ancient villages. Whether you're seeking peace and quiet or family days out there's something here for you on the Wolds Way.

The 76 miles of the Yorkshire Wolds Way includes 40 miles of footpath and 16 miles of bridleway. The remaining 20 miles is either minor road, public path or byway open to all traffic.

The idea for the Wolds Way came from the East Yorkshire and Derwent branch of the Ramblers Association. It became an official National Trail in 1982.
