Description
  • Your walk starts at the oldest part of South Cave near to Cave Castle, a large house built in the Gothic Style in 1791 and now an hotel and restaurant.  The impressive west gatehouse was built in 1870 and stands near the parish church (partly hidden by a majestic lime tree).  
  • Everthorpe is a small but busy farming community with many stone built farm houses. 
  • Your walk takes you through the east end of North Cave.  If you have time, follow the road north from the church to view the large lake and explore the streamside path opposite.  Note the old dovecote in the grounds of Manor Farm East next to the church which is built of coarse rubble. 
  • Return to South Cave past the Old Market Hall.

Further Information
Features of Interest
-  Drewton is said to take its name from St. Austin's stone which was a centre for Druidical worship (Druid Town).  It is said that St. Augustine (or Austin) came to England at the request of Pope Gregory and visited this part of the country (unlikely but interesting).  East Dale is part of the Wolds Way route and is well worth a visit, as is the picturesque area of Weedley Springs.  At Weedley Springs porous chalk meets an impervious clay strata.
