Hayburn Wyke

Hayburn Wyke

North Yorkshire

Route: Hayburn Wyke

Area: North Yorkshire

Date of walk: 8th January 2017

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 4.5 miles

Weather: Sunny

We parked just outside the village of Cloughton in one of the few roadside spaces along Newlands Lane. We walked along the lane with enticing views of the North Sea ahead as we did so, and after about ½ mile we joined the Cleveland Way which runs along the top of the cliffs

There were innumerable ups and downs as we followed the cliff top path as far as Hayburn Wyke, which is one of the small bays below the crumbling cliffs

We descended to the stony beach and then retraced our steps for a short distance before climbing up to join the access road which runs past the Hayburn Wyke Inn

Just beyond the hotel we turned off to start the return leg, which follows the course of the disused Yorkshire Coast Railway. This provided a very easy and quick way back to the start

It was a great little walk and one that I can highly recommend
