Walk Around Castle Howard Area

This walk is organised by Peter Brown. There is a walk planned for the Castle Howard area (but not requiring admission to the house or its grounds). It is not essential for people to let me know that they are coming on the walk as long as they are at Coneysthorpe by 10:15 a.m. However, please would those who would like to be included in a lunch booking let me know by Monday evening so that I can let the pub know how many to expect. You can submit a message to be forwarded to Peter through the contact form. Details. SHORT WALK - from Coneysthorpe, Wednesday 16th May starting 10:15 am A 4-mile walk with views of the Castle Howard estate from outside the grounds. The walk starts from Coneysthorpe village (OS Explorer Map 300, “Howardian Hills and Malton”: reference 712713), north of Castle Howard, start time 10.15am. The distance is just over 4 miles. The walk is mainly over farmland of the Castle Howard estate with distant views of the house itself, plus views of the Mausoleum, the Pyramid, the New River Bridge and the Temple of the Four Winds The walk is mainly over flat ground and there are no stiles and few gates. Much of it is on firm, flat tracks so there should be time to stop and take photographs. An optional extra is a stroll beside the Great Lake with views of Castle Howard itself. Travel directions To get to Coneysthorpe from York, head to the Hopgrove roundabout where the northern ring road joins the A64. Take the A64 for 7 miles to Barton Hill cross-roads. Turn left, following signs to Castle Howard. After about 3 miles, at the obelisk at the entrance to Castle Howard, keep straight on for about 0.7 miles to a cross-roads; turn right for 0.2 miles then left into Coneysthorpe village. Keep to the left of the green and there should be places to park to the left of the road towards the top end of the village outside the Village Hall (£1 donation per car requested by the Village Hall). The walk does NOT involve admission to Castle Howard and its grounds. From Malton, take the A64 towards York, just after the Crambeck valley turn right to Welburn then, after passing through the village, turn right towards Castle Howard and continue to the obelisk as from York. From Helmsley or Hovingham, take the B1257 (towards Malton) to the edge of Slingsby and turn right at the cross-roads. In about 2 miles at a cross-roads, turn left then continue for about 0.2 miles and turn left into Coneysthorpe village.
