ThumbnailThe Yorkshire Wolds don't look too impressive on a map, barely reaching 200m altitude, but don't let that fool you. There's plenty of ascent and descent, and some parts are very remote with limited refreshment or accommodation, so one or two of the Wolds days are quite long. Anyway, on we go, so head out of Filey through a housing estate on the path to Muston, where there's the Ship Inn, but it's too early to be of any real use. From here our route climbs up onto the first wold at Stockendale Farm, then into the delightful dry chalk valley of Camp Dale. Follow the switchback path over Flixton Wold to Staxton Wold, where there's a mysterious looking military communications station. Turn left here and eventually you'll descend to our destination for tonight, Ganton. The Greyhound Inn is a short distance away on the main road, and it's used to walkers because of the Wolds Way, so muddy boots and smelly armpits aren't a problem. Watch out for Wold Top bitter in the bar - highly recommended.
