Explorer Map OL26 - North York Moors (Western Area)

You don't really need a map for this walk.
The walk is on level ground all the way, and makes use of both farm lanes and the old railway trackbed bewteen Nunthorpe and Pinchinthorpe.
There are a few stiles to be crossed at Morton Grange Farm, but otherwise there are no dificulties on the walk.
The walk is a "there-and-back" walk, with the half-way point being the Visitor Centre at Pinchinthorpe. Here thereis a cafe and toilets.

Start from the car park by Nunthorpe's parish church. The car park closes at 3.00 p.m. and may be full if there is a wedding, or similar function, being held at the church.
Head up the lane that leads from the church to Morton Carr Farm.
Before reaching the farm, there is a large white house. Turn left here along the lane to Morton Grange Farm.
Continue until just past a railway crossing (with locked gates and large warning notices) a footpath runs beside the railway track.
Continue on the footpath until you reach a pedestrian crossing over the railway line.
Once over the railway line, head East for a short distance. Then turn sharp left to follow the footpath that leads to the Guisborough Forest Railway Walkway.
Follow the walkway to the Visitor Centre.
Retrace your steps to return to the parish church at Nunthorpe.
