This old favourite walk takes you to the top of the most northerly turf-cut white horse in England. The path is directly above the White Horse so you can’t see much of the horse itself, but the linear route along the escarpment gives you ample opportunity to savour one of the finest views in England, from the top of Sutton Bank.
As you follow the escarpment edge you might see gliders taking off and landing on the grassy land to the east of the path. Members of the Yorkshire Gliding Club have flocked to Sutton Bank since 1933 to take advantage of the air rising up and over the escarpment edge. In fact the shape of the land is so suitable for gliding that the Club altitude record stands at over 33,000 feet
