Lealholm to Grosmont walk


North Yorkshire

Route: Lealholm to Grosmont

Area: North Yorkshire

Date of walk: 31st August 2014

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 7.9 miles

Weather: Sunny and warm

This is a linear walk, part of the Esk Valley Walk, and making use of the Esk Valley Railway. We decided to catch the train first so as to avoid the complication of coinciding the end of our walk with the train timetable

We parked in the car park at Grosmont Station and caught the 10.42 am train in the direction of Middlesborough. It was a delightful 15 minute journey along the Esk Valley. We disembarked at Lealholm and after a quick wander round the attractive village we set out on the return journey by foot to Grosmont

The path is well waymarked and took us along the Esk Valley via the lovely villages of Glaisdale and Egton Bridge. The scenery was varied, and superb every step of the way. We seemed to be the only walkers on the route which was hard to credit on a sunny Sunday in August

On arriving back in Grosmont we agreed that this was one of the best walks we’d had this year
