Short Walk from Rudston -Moderate

Start Rudston (Gypsy Race)

Both of the routes run along public paths over land belonging to the Macdonald family. 

The family's members have been instrumental in keeping open the ancient footpaths and bridleways in the area.

On the shorter walk, of less than 2 miles, you begin alongside the Gypsey Race and take in the church before crossing the main road. You then climb the gentle hill opposite to follow the side of a wood. 

After crossing the road again, you follow an ancient awarded footpath across the caravan site entrance to return to the village.

On the longer walk of about 3 1/2 miles you start on South Side Lane. 

Follow the track around the (recently re-planted) zigzag plantation into the locally-named "Hilly Grass". 

On your left you will see Thorpe Hall, home of the Bosville Macdonald family for the past 200 years. 

After passing through a gap in the trees you will see Wold Gate. 

This road was once a prehistoric trade route, used later by the Romans to get from York to the coast. Turn right at the road and follow it for about a 1/2 mile. 

Watch out for traffic - today's chariots are faster than those used by the Romans! 

The next bridleway sign points to a wood which will lead you back to South Side Lane where you started.

This route:-
Contains some steep slopes.
Contains kissing gates and steps.
