Cropton, Appleton-Le-Moors, Hutton-Le-Hole & Lastingham

Friday 23rd April 2021

A gentle walk in the North Yorkshire Moors, although the scenery is more traditional English countryside rather than the bleak moorland that the name suggests. A wonderfully warm and dry day made for a very pleasant trip out. We started at the village of Cropton with the aim of finishing in the New Inn upon our return (which worked out well). Our walk took us to the wonderfully preserved Appleton-le-Moors and then to the pleasant village of Hutton-Le-Hole with it's large village green and Hutton Beck winding its way through the centre. The final stop was Lastingham - A very beautiful small village in Ryedale - I love this place, a stunning Norman church dating back to the 11th century (plus a crypt that actually dates to AD 654) and a schoolhouse which just takes you back in time. Plus a really good pub !
