Darrington Walk One - 1.7km

Take the footpath (2) the side of the A1 North,keep animals and children close as this very exposed to the A1 traffic and there is no crash barrier for some of the way.

After 400 metres there is a signed footpath (3) to the left at right angles to the A1,this is called Back Lane and you can follow this path all along the back of the village. Past Church Farm at the top of Phillips Lane, please keep dogs under control and do not let them wander into the farm yard as this is a disease control area.

Some of the farm barns date back to the 1600's but are now being restored for residential use. Carry straight on past the farm and you are now on a recently adopted new path for the Village that has only been a permissive path before. In the distance on your right you can see the chimneys of Ferrybridge power station.

At the end of the field you join Marlpit Lane, here you need to turn left, walk down the the footpath to the crossroads and turn left again. Follow the main street and this will take you back to the A1.
