Terrington Walk

Details

This enjoyable 2½-mile walk in the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty delivers some great views. On a clear day you can spot York Minster and even landmarks near the Humber Estuary! The walk explores the countryside to the north of Terrington village, taking in the periphery of the historic Estate of Wiganthorpe. Most of Wiganthorpe Hall was destroyed in the 1950s, but some parkland features and sections of the boundary wall remain. The walk also crosses Rose Cottage Farm Meadow, a semi-improved grassland designated as a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation.

Route credits

Thanks to our partners, the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, who devised and produced the route and downloadable guide. This route is also available on the Howardian Hills AONB website.

Howardian Hills AONB

The Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) covers 79 square miles (204 sq km) of the North Yorkshire countryside, nestled between the North York Moors National Park, the Yorkshire Wolds and the Vale of York. It is a captivating landscape with its well-wooded rolling countryside, patchwork of arable and pasture fields, scenic villages and historic country houses with classic parkland landscapes – including, of course, Castle Howard, perhaps England’s finest stately home.

The Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty designation was confirmed in 1987, in recognition of its national landscape importance.

Did you know?

The summer air is heady with the smell of lavender at nearby Yorkshire Lavender, where hundreds of different lavender and herb varieties bloom across the hillside.
