Here is Paul’s sixth walk .
This month his destination is North Cave.

Maps:-    EXPLORER 291 & 293
Start at GR. 897327 Car park opposite Church. Distance 6.5 Miles.
This walk can also be started by parking on the wide grass verges at GR. 875338 on the road leading to Snake Hall.

On leaving the car park, cross the main road and walk down passing the church on the right, cross a bridge and pass through white gates leading to Hotham Hall. Follow the surfaced track and pass the hall to the right and then turn left to pass green houses on your right.
After passing the green houses, turn right and walk by Home Farm on the left. On reaching the road, cross over and enter a field through a kissing gate. (This field has recently been planted with conifers and holly) Leave the field by a stile and walk down a short narrow path to meet the main road in Hotham. On reaching the road continue ahead and, when meeting the junction near the war memorial, turn left. Carry straight on at two cross roads eventually passing Snake Hall South on the left. On reaching North Carr Farm, turn left and follow a wide track with the drain and hedge on your left.
This track eventually swings to the right to arrive at South Carr Farm. On approaching the farm, turn left down a cinder track. This track eventually becomes surfaced at a junction of paths (The sign indicates North Cave 7 miles but in fact you are 2 miles from North Cave). At this junction of paths, turn left and follow the track to Common Farm. Bear left through the farm and locate and cross a stile. Walk diagonally to the right to a gate and pass through this gate onto a wide grassy track.
Continue along this track passing Dryham (ignore the paths to the right) and continue ahead passing the North Cave Wet Lands Reserve on the left. This is the site of the old gravel quarries and is now being converted into a wild life reserve.
On reaching the main road walk ahead and when the road swings right continue ahead on a minor road. After 300 metres locate a path to the right and follow this path. At the junction of paths bear left and cross a footbridge. On reaching the road turn left and follow the road back to the car park.
