Why you should do this walk…

A 3 mile circular walk from the small village of Barnburgh, near Doncaster in South Yorkshire. The route climbs steadily along a quiet track to reach the heights of Barnburgh Crags (or Barnburgh Cliff as it is sometimes called). This stretch of woodland path rewards you with far-reaching views to the south as well as sections of beautiful old rock face. The return leg leads you gently downhill through fields and woodland with a great view of the Dovecote in Barnburgh Park.

Dog friendly?…

The route has one long and steady climb followed by the equivalent descent. Whilst most of the paths are wide and well-made, some of the paths on the return leg are narrow and unmade and are prone to becoming both overgrown and muddy at times. This stretch can be avoided if necessary, by following a track and then pavement instead. You will not be sharing any of the paths with livestock, meaning well-behaved dogs can enjoy plenty of off-lead time. Near the start of the walk, there may be sheep in one of the side fields (behind electric fencing). There are no stiles or gates on route. There is one short stretch along the edge of a road which needs particular care.

    Lovely walk, lots of off lead time and plenty to keep the dogs interested. The app was great in keeping us on track!

    We went on this walk today and it was lovely. It was really muddy but it didn’t bother us. There is however, sheep on this walk. They are protected by a live electric fence. We have a dog so had to keep her away from it. The sheep field is just as you start the walk on the right. Near the end of the walk is a pub that served amazing salmon. The crown Inn is worth a visit and you can take your dog inside.
