Filey to Hunmanby Circular Walk
This easy, flat, circular walk takes you along bridleways and paths to the historica village of Hunmanby, which is known as the Gateway to the Wolds. There is a heritage trail once you arrive in Hunmanby, which is available in local shops free of charge and will help you to visit all the places of note. It is reasonably well sign-posted once you leave Filey itself.
The route out of Filey takes you through Crescent Gardens, Glenn Gardens and past a number of holiday parks along a bridleway and an access road to the holiday parks. On arriving at the A165, directly in front of you at the opposite side of the roundabout, you will spot a footpath sign.
The road can be extremely busy at peaks times of year, so cross where you can. The footpath (Centenary Way) takes you through farmland. It does include a number of stiles and take care if you have a dog as there is usually cattle in the fields. It is mainly gritted path, but there is a small section which is just field and can get muddy after heavy rain.
As you leave the farmland behind and come into a residential area, cross the road and continue ahead up a slight hill. On reaching a road junction, you will see the 16th Century church of All Saints in front of you. This is the centre of the village so take some time to explore.
The return route takes you along the path between All Saints Church and Wrangham House. Turn right as you reach the road (Stonegate) and continue past the Community Centre until you reach Bowling Green Lane on the left. Walk down the lane until you reach Hunmnaby Primary School on your left. Follow the footpath between Hunmanby Primary and the houses until you reach the road (Outgates Lane). Turn right and almost immediately you will spot a footpath sign on your left. This path runs past a house on your right and then through a kissing gate, along a narrow rough (and sometimes muddy) track, bringing you out on open farmland.
Again, be aware of grazing sheep if you have a dog. The path is usually well-trodden and signed at each gate so easy to follow, even though this section of does not show as a footpath on this map. It will eventually bring you out on the A165 near to the Royal Oak railway crossing where you will cross and turn left. After a short distance, turn right along the access road to Lowfield Holiday Park, which is a designated public footpath. Continue following the road, turning left after the reception and then left at the top of the hill which leads you out of the holiday park and back on the path you started on.
The map takes you a slightly different route back to your start point but, you're now back in Filey and you may wish to just find your own route back
