Footpaths and Rights of Way

Walking in and around Crayke Parish

Crayke is fortunately blessed with a network of footpaths through our splendid countryside, which has been well-used during this year’s pandemic.
The vast majority of walkers know and respect the Countryside Code, but on occasion there have been problems, such as gates being left open, posing a serious risk to livestock. Some walkers wander away from the rights of way, and some allow dogs to wander out of their effective control.

The Parish Council continues to work with our local farmers and landowners to help keep these important routes open for all to enjoy, but we need your help in sticking to the rules and spreading the word to others.

The document below gives important information on where you can walk, and useful advice to walkers and farmers alike. Please read and familiarise yourself with this, so that we can all continue to enjoy our walks.
