Enclosure Rites is a stunning artwork overlooking the Vale of Pickering that is reached after the steep ascent from Wintringham. The work is part of the WANDER - art along the Yorkshire Wolds Way installations. It was completed by Jony Easterby and draws strongly on the archaeological importance of the area.
You will encounter this great artwork after climbing the steepest hill on the Yorkshire Wolds Way, soon after leaving Wintringham!
The rest of the walk is peaceful and tranquil, with wonderful views across the Vale of Pickering to the North York Moors and a return back into the Yorkshire Wolds.
Distance: 8.7 miles/14km
