I left Tadcaster heading south, but in fact went east for about 3 miles along the River Wharfe. The path is clear enough and attractive, but being May was quite overgrown, which made it tiring. The rest of the path is quite clear, passing a golf course, church, care home and a couple of tiny villages....

It has a shop and drinks and then leads to a direct scenic bridle path north to Ledsham....

This route felt very road-heavy again, with times where you are walking on the road without there being a footpath. With that, I wouldn’t recommend the route if you have small children, or like me, you are struggling with blisters the size of cats and there doesn’t seem to many places to sit down for a while. In terms of scenery, the residential areas are very nice and the fields stretching on for miles are lovely at the time we were walking (and it wasn’t raining!)....

A nice enough walk from Sherburn taking in A roads then into fields which was nice to see wildlife - hares and kites. Lots of fields before entering selby. Market on Saturdays....

Hambleton to crossing the trainline via Dam Lane is all concrete and the pedestrian footpath disappears after crossing the railway....

This was probably my favourite part of the walk - as it was a real mixture of terrain and it was at times beautiful....

Walk this route

The first half of the route out of Sherburn in Elmet is complicated and problematic around rail lines and access. After Hambleton, there is considerable road walking along the A63, a fast busy road, with a need to cross the road on a couple of occasions, with no safe crossings....

Walk this route

There were access issues here and we had to divert around a field and across a freshly turned field where we had to ridge hop due to very deep furrows - slow progress and not at all accessible at this time of year - I imagine when the field is in crop, there would be tractor tramlines to follow, making it a bit easier but not for any form of wheels....

Walking through the fields after Mickelfield was fun but it became quickly confusing as we were meant to continue straight but were faced with a crossroads (see Lotherton/Huddleston picture) because the path going straight has a private property barrier....

Lots of fields which were quite muddy and signposting became tricky....

Do not go in the yard look for a small path next to the field fence between the nettles, on the right as you look at it. When crossing the massive field before the hall aim for the outbuilding, walk down the side , through the gate and along the path....

Quite a lot of on-road walking on the approach to Sherburn (no pavements) prevents 4 or 5 star...
