Egleton Churchyard

    Selected Wild Place / Other Wild Places / Public Rights of Way / VC55 boundary

    Getting There

    The church is located at the northern-most end of Egleton, just as you enter the village along Church Road.

    From the A6003, exit onto Hambleton Road. Take the third left turn onto Church Road, and follow the road all the way to the church, which will be on your right after a bend in the road.

    There is a bus stop right outside the churchyard but sadly it doesn't appear to be in use. Therefore, the closest bus stop is on the corner of Hambleton Road and the A6003, which is serviced by the R47 and RF1 (both Centrebus). From there it is a 15- minute walk.
