Adults and children alike are being urged to enjoy the simple pleasures of rolling down the grassy bank above the footpath that leads from Ray Wood to Castle Howard. The width enables up to three children — or a child and an adult — to roll concurrently, making it ideal for informal racing. They include lateral rolling, where your body is straight with your arm tucked in, and the faster but more difficult snowball roll, where a forward roll - or roly poly - is repeated, gathering speed as the roller heads down the hill. For the lateral roll, they recommend a quick push off using the momentum to carry you forward - but warn that it is common for rollers to veer off a straight line and come to a stop when their body is no longer perpendicular to the slope. An emergency stop can be implemented by simply sticking out a leg or an arm. The snowball roll, the team said, requires a little more practice, but can be far more accurate in terms of direction, thus enabling a longer distance to be travelled. It can, however, be more difficult to stop. By creating the rolling space, the team at Castle Howard are hoping that it will mark the start of more informal use of the 1, acres of garden and forest. The slope was chosen not only for the incline, but because this stretch of grass is generally clear of debris, with the exception of the occasional mole hill.
