Here is Paul’s second walk. This month his destination is Withernsea.

 

Maps: Explorer 292.

Start at GR. 339279 Car park near church and lighthouse.

Distance: 5.7 miles

 

On leaving the car park, turn left and proceed down the B1362 (Hull road) for about 0.5 miles. Immediately before the last bungalow, “SUNRAE” on the right, turn right and follow a wide farm track in a northerly direction. After approximately 0.5 miles and at a sharp right bend, turn left and follow a path across the field in a line with telegraph poles. On reaching a hedge, turn right and immediately left walking with the drain on your left.

Turn right at the head of the field and locate a footbridge on the left. Cross this footbridge and a stile, turn right and follow the field boundary, locate and cross a stile and continue in the same direction heading for farm buildings. Follow the field boundary to the left and locate a footbridge on the right.

Cross this footbridge with extreme care (very slippery) and then cross a stile into a paddock. Walk across this paddock to emerge onto a farm access road made out of large concrete blocks. After a short distance this track swings to the left and climbs slightly. At the top of the rise and near Shaw farm you cross the Greenwich Meridian.

This track becomes a farm road and eventually meets the Rimswell road. On reaching the main road, turn right and walk into Rimswell. After passing the church on your left and the village hall on your right, locate a way marker on your right and pass through a metal gate into a field. Cross this field with the hedge on your right and cross a stile located in the left corner of the field then walking with the hedge on your left. On reaching the corner of the field, cross a footbridge and walk in the same direction eventually following the headland to the right. Ignore a footbridge on the left which leads to the main road but continue walking in a southerly direction.

After about 0.5 miles, locate a footbridge on the left and cross and continue in the same direction. Locate another footbridge on your right which you should cross and turn right walking with a ditch/drain on your right.

At the end of this field you cross a footbridge and turn left to follow the outward path back to the car park.
