Flamborough Head

East Yorkshire

Route: Flamborough Head

Area: East Yorkshire

Date of walk: 30th August 2014

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 9.5 miles

Weather: Sunny, warm and windy

We parked in the car park at Danes Dyke and walked towards Dykes End. Within a few minutes we were on the east coast enjoying views over the North Sea. There then followed several miles of wonderful cliff top walking – with quite a few ups and downs – as we followed a section of the long distance Headland Way to Flamborough Head

The towering cliffs and rocky coves below were a spectacular sight as we made our way along the tops. Walking doesn’t get much better than this

All too soon we reached Thornwick Bay and it was time to head inland, and we passed through a caravan park and Flamborough village before reaching open countryside and making our way back to the start

Luckily the weather was on our side today and the sunny conditions showed the cliffs in their best light. It was a wonderful walk
