|Today's 9.25m route around Castle Howard from Welburn|
Sixteen of us had a great walk today in fine autumn weather around Castle Howard. We were led by Ramblers' member Alan. We started from Welburn Church and completed a 9.25 miles circuit of the Castle Howard estate.

The villages of Coneysthorpe, Ganthorpe and Bulmer were visited and we were back in Welburn by 3.00pm after a 10.30am start. The woodland paths in a few places, in particular Bulmer Hag were quite overgrown but the group managed to negotiate them thank's to Alan the leader bringing two pairs of secateurs on the walk!
