Walk Route Description

If you have walked the Cleveland Way, you may have started or finished at Filey. So, one down and at least two more to go - as the Yorkshire Wolds Way and the Centenary Way both start from Filey. This walk sets off on the Wolds Way and returns on the Centenary Way. It takes in the agricultural land of the wolds with views from the tops back to the coast south of Filey.

Parking is relatively easy in Filey near to the train station. From here you take the A1039 out south westwards until just before Filey Academy school. The Wolds Way is signed off to the right as it makes it way around the back of the school, over the A165 and onto the road into Muston. The Ship Inn is well worth a detour - but maybe after the walk is completed?

The road out of Muston is not the most pleasant part of the walk as it can be busy and there are no pathways but it is relatively soon before you turn off left across the fields. Keep the fence on your right. The path can be poorly defined but keep going until you go through a hedge and turn left on a farm track. The fields of crops that you walk through are very pleasant as they sway in the breeze in late summer and other parts seem to have been left as wildflower meadows.

Cross over the road and pass Stockendale Farm. As you bear right down the track keep straight on when it goes left - just in front of a tank with a small way-mark sign on it. The path then goes down Stocking Dale until it meets up with the Centenary Way. Follow the Centenary Way up towards Hunmanby Grange - look out for the blue topped grain-drying structures (maybe?) - and turn off left (where there is a half hidden way-mark) rather than carrying on up the track to the Grange.

As you come past Field House Farm you get a feel for the rolling hills around you and get views to the coast. Join the road and follow it down into Hunmanby, around Castle Hill and off on your left along Northgate. At the end of the road it becomes a track that passes North Moor Farm then heads on to the A165 roundabout.

Take the road off to the Centenary Way camping site and Muston Grange, cross the railway bridge, pass the golf course and head for the cliffs. The path takes you down to the seafront near the paddling pool and you can come back into town on Cargate Hill.

Yorkshire Wolds Walking

The Yorkshire Wolds are chalk hills that run in an arc from west of Hull to the North Sea coast south of Bridlington. At their eastern end the Wolds produce the high cliffs rising to 420 feet above the sea east of Speeton. To the south the Yorkshire Wolds continue across the River Humber to the Lincolnshire Wolds which have a similar geological character. Most of the Yorkshire Wolds lie in the county of East Yorkshire although some of the hills at western end are in neighbouring North Yorkshire. More Information
