Outdoor Leisure Map OL26, - North York Moors (Western Area)
This walk is straightforward, but can be simplified.
After setting out from the parking area at Square Corner, a Forestry
tackthrough Silton Forest is followed. A small detour is then made over
famland footpaths, though this can be omitted if needed.
The rest of the route is very starightforward, with the half-way point
being the Church of St. Mary Magdalene at Over Silton.
The rturn to Square Corner is basically using the Forestry track taken
on the outward leg of the walk.
