A pleasant route using urban cycle routes, country lanes and farmland. We walked it on a dry day in early August.

Starting at York railway station at 9.30am we arrived in Stamford Bridge at 3pm after a leisurely walk with 2 fairly lengthy stops. The first of these was on a bench by the road junction at Murton village and the second was by the duck pond in delightful Warthill.

The most tricky parts of the walk were route-finding across first a potato field (because of the crop being planted over the right of way) and then a beanfield, and also climbing over a high, wonky stile into the beanfield.

Highlights on the route for me were looking at some of York's industrial heritage, the open farmland above Gate Helmsley, and the lovely old stone road bridge and brick railway viaduct at Stamford Bridge.

This is a good route to walk. It follows Route 66 cycle way to Murton.

Slight problem leaving Murton as public footpath not obvious and hate didn’t open. Slight detour to farm track put you back on the public footpath. Easy to follow on the footpaths but 4 stiles to negotiate. The last stile being very high and a tricky climb.

Easy road walk along very quiet tarmac road to Warthill where there is a pub, garden centre and village pond with seating for a break.

Public footpath to Gate Hemlmsley very easy to follow but followed by a noisy walk along main road for 10 minutes to pick up the cycle way into Stamford Bridge. Also have to cross this busy Road. However, there is another garden centre with cafe if you need a break.

Cycle way into Stamford Bridge easy to follow and you can drop down to walk in along the river bank.

It took me 3 hours including a 20 minutes lunch break.

I would walk it again and happy to recommend the route.
