A little gem of a walk in March 2010
14. A circular walk from Lastingham via Spaunton and Hutton-le-Hole
See also 1. Lastingham, St Mary's Church
Starting from the village green in Lastingham Village (the church is up on the left)
Leaving Lastingham in a southerly direction you pick up a path that climbs up to Oldfield Lane.
You continue walking west along Oldfield Lane until you reach the quiet hamlet of Spaunton with its one wide street.
This old house in Spaunton is dated 1695.
From Spaunton village you zig-zag through Grange Farm with pleasant views across rolling fields and the moors beyond - excellent quiet and unassuming rambling country.
I think its an organic farm? and nice to see the wind turbines working above the wool producing sheep - a modern 'natural' scene!
The first lambs near Grange Farm
The nice 'green lane' between Grange Farm and Hutton-le-Hole.
First view of Hutton-le-Hole and a wonderful ('hazy'!) panoramic views of the moorland beyond and the road up to Blakey Ridge.
Rather limestone stony fields.
A grand vista!
Hutton-le-Hole appears through the trees at Austin Head.
A lunch break in Hutton-le-Hole and there is a pub and cafe in Hutton-le-Hole!
You then head northwest until you reach the Hutton-le-Hole to Lastingham road which you leave at Mary Magdalen's Well and head north to the edge of the open moor (southern part of Spaunton Moor) and the walk north-east along another lovely path north of Camomile farm.
Only a few trees like these Scots Pine survive on the wild open moorland of Spaunton Moor.
You then drop south back into Lastingham passing the Grange Hotel - a great afternoon tea and sandwiches!
and back to the green, from which you can walk up to visit to the St Mary's Church, which is well worthwhile a visit.
The churchyard of St Mary's looks down on the inviting Blacksmiths Arms.

The delightful St Mary's Church.
This is a real gem of a ramble and only 4.5 miles!
