Shower dodging

Views like this are worth the potential risk of a soaking on a showery summer's evening. Thankfully, on this occasion the rain didn't come and we could enjoy the stunning views around Huggate. This picture is taken from the place we parked the car at the end of the public road that goes north through Huggate. We walked down the hill and then joined the public footpath at the the bottom, turning right following the road up the hill and then right again up a farm road that led to a high point that afforded long views across the wolds. We then reversed our route and enjoyed the views in the other direction. 

The path we took formed part of the Chalkland Way. This route is a 40 mile circular route around the fantastic landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds that takes in the villages of Great Givendale,Bishop Wilton, Bugthorpe, Thixendale, Fimber, Wetwang and Huggate. The route has been waymarked by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and more details can be found at Chalkland Way along with the details of other long distance routes in the area that anyone. 

The views in the Huggate area certainly make it a part of the Yorkshire Wolds we always visit and we''ll be back again soon.
