Welburn is a very quiet sleepy village but has a fine Victorian Parish Church built of lovely honey-coloured limestone. The Barley Basket is a friendly cafe and good starting point for a walk northwards walking through the Castle Howard estate and the Crown and Cushion pub serves the village and walkers too.

From Welburn Village you can walk almost due north into the Castle Howard Estate and continue on permissive paths.

 

The Pyramid (right in picture) is on your left just before you cross over the footpath of the Centenary Way.

 

Further on the Mausoleum is on your right before you cross over the New River Bridge.
