If you can get your mind past Christmas, have a look at the walks on offer with Ryedale Walking Group in the first half of January. There’s even one on New Year’s Day, a nice easy walk with a late start, so there’s no excuse for sitting at home nursing that hangover.
Monday 1st January: Wrelton, Beadale & Cottage Leas
5 miles (easy) 400ft
Park/Start 13:00 Wayside holiday park access road, Wrelton (SE763858).
Sunday 7th January: Sir Tatton Sykes Monument & Cottam
9 miles (moderate) 950ft
Park/Start 10:00 Monument car park on B1252 Sledmere to Driffield Road (SE957618).
Sunday 14th January: Wheeldale, Hazel Head & Bumble Wood
8.3 miles (moderate) 950ft
