A walk with the Ramblers

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! 

Crops gathered and fields ploughed in many places, but not this one yet
There really are some great public rights of way around Castle Howard, I've walked round here many times and never failed to enjoy it.
