History and heritage galore! All in a 10 mile walk.

Let's celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the Cleveland Way by walking a stretch on the northern edge of the North York Moors. And then, step further back in time at the ruins of Guisborough Priory to mark 900 years since it was founded by Robert de Brus, ancestor of the Scottish King Robert the Brus.

We also tread a part of Cleveland Street long-distance path, which starts / ends at the Priory. Other highlights include Slapewath viaduct (disused railway) in the heart of Cleveland Ironstone mining territory, the Guisborough Forest, and stunning views from Highcliff Nab over the Tees Valley, across to the Pennines, County Durham and out over the North Sea.

The route is a mix of forest tracks, moorland paths, a little bit of tarmac, and an opportunity to find cakes in Guisborough town centre before we return to the start. Entry to Guisborough Priory is free.
