The Wolds Way crosses Malton Road on its way to Muston and Filey. Often referred to as 'Happy Hens' as Stockendale Farm here sell eggs from their free range chickens.  It is only one and a third miles from this point to the centre of Hunmanby Village (All Saints Church). To fully appreciate the Yorkshire Wolds, it would be a shame to miss Hunmanby village. The historic village was for centuries (until the rise of the Victorian Seaside Resorts) the key settlement on the northern scarp slope of the Wolds. Settlements needed a water supply. The Wolds being chalk and free draining has only an intermittent, non reliable water flow in the Gypsy Race.  So early settlers chose places like  Hunmanby or Kilham. Hunmanby is not only a historic village, it is also a working village, it has expanded since the 1960's, but has retained its character. It has adapted to the loss of jobs in agriculture and later the closure of Butlins Holiday Camp, with the Parish Council developing an industrial estate that now provides work for around 400 people. The village has great facilities, both accommodation, and places to eats and locally run shops. The walk down Malton Road is not that pleasant, if you need a taxi to pick you up or drop off, book in advance, price to and from the village will be around £5.

Hunmanby is also served by an hourly train service 7 days a week. These trains also serve Filey. Most trains are now through services to Doncaster, Meadowhall and Sheffield. Thus providing easy connections to the rest of the country.
