If you fancy a change and have a good map reader
and a map, take the smaller roads
over the Wolds from Driffield.You may have to
press the bigger button on the top edge of their
map to see the whole route. It is shorter and
usually quicker with very little traffic. After
you have got on the B1249 to Staxton from the
Driffield roundabout take the next right (a mile
or so from the roundabout). You are then aiming to
go through Kilham, Burton Fleming and Hunmanby.
(Some of the roads are narrow and the signs are
not that good but it is a more direct route and
through contryside and usually much quicker as
there is so little traffic.)
