Two circular walks, both 6 miles from Fotherby, one going through Utterby, the other through North Elkington.
Both walks start from Fotherby and onwards to Fotherby Common. One then heads to North Elkington, passing through the Deserted medieval village, the other takes in Utterby, passing Packhorse Bridge and St Andrew’s Church, before joining the disused railway line. On both walks there are fine views of the eastern edge of the Wolds, across the marsh towards the coastline and round to the Humber.
