Kirkby Overblow is a village in the Harrogate district of North Yorkshire. It is situated 13 miles north of Leeds and 4 miles south of Harrogate and sits astride a ridge 400ft high forming the northern bank of the river Wharfe

The first written reference to Kirkby Overblow appears in the Domesday Book, where it appears as Cherchebi. The Kirkby part of the name is a common prefix, simply meaning a settlement by a church,

The walk starts at 10am, but we will be having a midmorning break and a lunch break. We'll  also be stopping to look at things along the way whether it is wildlife or unusual rock formations.

From the delightful village of Kirkby Overblow, this 8 mile circular will take us through fields and countryside to the village of Sicklinghall, along country lanes to Spofforth, where we’ll enjoy lunch by their ruins in their park, before heading back through trails and past large fishing ponds to Kirkby Overblow.

Well behaved dogs are welcome on this event. Please keep your dog on a lead near livestock, Dogs must be kept under control at all times.
