Wentbridge house to little smeaton and return

Nothing much beats a walk through the woods, farmlands and villages of West Yorkshire. The fresh air, nature’s colours (whatever the season), history at every turn. And the feeling that each step must be doing you good. (Excuse enough for a gin or a pint at the end).

Here’s an idea for a stunning trail that sets a moderate challenge over a couple of hours and leads you back to an award-winning restaurant and bar.

Your starting point is the historic village of Wentbridge (outside the equally historic Wentbridge House to be precise). The 5.2-mile walk will take you alongside the River Went, through the glorious Brockadale Nature Reserve, to Little Smeaton and back.

Make sure to wear sturdy walking shoes or boots, as the trail can be muddy depending on the weather and require some clambering. Remember to carry a water bottle and consider a light waterproof jacket and hat. You never know what the English weather may deliver!

Please note that dogs are welcome on this walk but must be on a lead.
