Bempton Cliffs

Bempton Cliffs

East Yorkshire

Route: Bempton Cliffs

Area: East Yorkshire

Date of walk: 16th May 2013

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 14.8 miles

Ascent: 1,000 feet

I parked at South Landing and walked down to the beach, then joined the coastal path which leads round Flamborough Head to North Landing. The path then took me along the cliff tops to Bempton. Navigation is simple, just keep the sea on your right. Don’t forget the binoculars

The weather was poor to start with but gradually improved and by lunchtime it was a glorious day

The feature of this walk was the birdlife. Bempton is the best place in England to see seabirds – there are hundreds of thousands of them, making an incredible spectacle (and sound and smell!). See the RSPB website for details

Having visited the various viewing points, I returned back along the same path, turning towards Flamborough at Gull Nook, and walking back through fields

What a brilliant walk it had been – thanks to the seabirds
