Description
  • Welton Dale is a typical dry chalk valley, except for the ash, beech and conifer trees which were planted in the 19th century as an 'improvement'. 
  • Pass through a woodland belt and then cross a concrete farm road.  Turn right and walk beside the road, in the field, for about 200 yards.  Next cross the road. 
  • Once through the narrow shelter-belt you follow the side of the wood.  Towards the end of this path the view over the Humber is superb.  Next follow the path around a sharp corner to reach the top of Crossall Hill Lane.  You then pass down the steep hill to return to Welton.
