Richmond to Gilling West

Saturday 29th January 2022

A short walk from the North Yorkshire market town of Richmond to the village of Gilling West 3.5 miles to the North via the impressive Aske Estate. I've categorised this walk as 'Easy' and I think it is, although the first 15 minutes from Richmond to the golf course is a bit of a slog uphill.

It can be walked either way with good inter-connecting bus services between the two. I actually did an out and back but have only documented the Richmond to Gilling West leg.

I had planned to go to the lakes today, but due to the excessive winds (Storm Malik) - I decided a lower level walk would be a better choice and leave the lakes for next weekend.
