Why you should do this walk…

A 3 mile strenuous circular walk from Lord Stones in the North York Moors, near Chop Gate in North Yorkshire. The walk begins at the Lord Stones car park, home to a cafe-restaurant and shop, and visits the standing stones which give the site its name. Setting out, the route crosses a beautiful section of remote moorland before joining the Cleveland Way to climb steeply to the top of Cringle Moor, the third highest hill in the North York Moors which offers spectacular views, before a gentler descent back to Lord Stones. With the views on offer, it is definitely a walk to save for a clear day.

Dog friendly?…

The walk is relatively flat, with only gentle gradients. There are no stiles or gates on route but you will need to negotiate a couple of flights of steps. The paths are all tarmac, paved or cobbled so the route is easy to follow throughout the year.

Please note that story behind Dick and Little Nell is fictitious.

    York race course is our regular haunt and its fantastic for doggy socialising with miles of grass for chasing balls, also the Slip Inn just off Bishopthorpe road is dog friendly and serves very good ale 🙂

    Walked Dick Turpin dog walk this morning with the family. Clear directions helped us walk round with ease. Parts of the walk were quieter whereas some parts were fairly busy with pedestrians. Shame we couldn’t call at either of the dog friendly pubs as they didn’t cater for children as well 🙁
