With the church gate behind you, turn right. Cross the footbridge 
to the SE of the churchyard, called Dalicar Bridge on the map. Turn right to the end of the field and go through a gate. Go uphill and follow the path indicators slightly to the right to a stile and then left * and round the farmyard at Sunny Bank Farm.



Continue on the footpath, keeping in a direction going South. 
Follow a small stream to a gate, go down
hill to cross another stream. Head straight ahead uphill and then bear left towards a hillock. You will see a gate ahead with the way-marker. Go through the farmyard and follow the path indicator to the right. *
Go steeply uphill and bear right on the path till you reach a track where you turn left and continue on the track to the road at Murton Grange.



Cross the road and take the road opposite for almost 2 miles-  past Murton Grange, through Caydale, passing Caydale Mill on your left at the ford and uphill to Old Byland. Bear left, then right to the village green and All Saints Church which is behind the Rectory in the NE corner.
