OutdoorLads-By-The-Sea: Summer on the Yorkshire coast
5 people attending
15 places left
Fancy a refreshing afternoon stroll mid-week in the East Cleveland/North Yorkshire area? Well come over and walk away the blues on the Yorkshire beaches in the company of OutdoorLads.
This walk is an easy outing along the beach, returning on the coastal footpath and offering a much easier mid summer walk alternative to some of the more popular and more challenging cliff top walks south of here.
The views on the outward leg impresses as the land to the south rises from the sea in impressive sandstone cliffs, further along this section of the coast to Skinningrove are the highest cliffs on the east coast of England.
The beaches visited on the walk at low tide are wide and easily shared with the horse riders, joggers and dog walkers. There will be a pause at a quieter spot for a dip in the sea if the temperature is still relatively warm so please bring a towel and suitable attire.
The halfway point is the charming resort of Saltburn-By-The-Sea and we will spend plenty of time here to walk to the end of the pier continue to Old Saltburn, buy an ice cream, grab some take out food in the many places on offer, or for those who prefer a picnic beside the sea. We will then either use the cliff lift to reach the higher level paths if open on the edge of the town and after a stop for photographs return by a higher level route to the start point with fantastic views to Teesmouth and back to Saltburn Pier and the cliffs.
The return journey visits a ruin of an old church ruin before reaching the start point in late afternoon sunshine.
