Explore handsome Osmotherley and its surroundings on a 3¼ -mile circular walk that touches every aspect of the village’s rich religious past. The village itself has both medieval church and 18th-century Methodist chapel, while following field and woodland paths to the northwest leads to the impressive ruins of Mount Grace Priory – the best-preserved Carthusian remains in the country. Returning to Osmotherley along a section of the Cleveland Way National Trail, there’s the option of calling in at The Lady Chapel, a place of Catholic pilgrimage for over 600 years – beautifully set on a hillside with sweeping views over Bilsdale, Teesside and the Pennines. Osmotherley is a noted walking centre – on the Cleveland Way and at the start of the Lyke Wake Walk – so there’s no shortage of places to rest up afterwards, including three pubs for a population of just a few hundred!
