Helmsley (YO62 5AB), is the next village on our route, the square is a popular stopping off point for bikers,
The path through Farndale is mostly surfaced but it can be muddy on a few sections, wellies / boots or stout shoes are recommended, the Farndale Valley is famous for its wild daffodils.
Those who have been to this area before will know that this is just a cover for going to see Rachael the lovely Landlady of The Feversham Arms Inn to sample her over generous portions of bar food and excellent hand pulled beers !
