From Knaresborough we follow the River Nidd in a southerly direction for a short distance and then head towards Birkham Wood and Plompton Hall. From there we continue to Little Ribston and return to the Nidd for our lunch-break, looking across the river to Ribston Hall. We then follow part of the Knaresborough Round route to Goldsborough before looping back to the start.

There are plenty of post-walk refreshment options in Knaresborough town centre.

We have to cross the busy A658 on two occasions on this walk. Please take extra care when crossing the road.

There are usually a few muddy sections.

Meeting point: York Place Long Stay Pay & Display Car Park in Knaresborough. Post code HG5 0AD. The entrance is on the main road, opposite the swimming pool, next to the Marquis of Granby pub. We will meet in front of the toilet block at 10.15, to start the walk at 10.30.
