Area: North York Moors

Date of walk: 10th August 2013

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 8.9 miles

Ascent: 800 feet

We parked in the beautiful village of Runswick Bay, a paradise for artists and photographers. After leaving the village, we walked through fields, and then a nature reserve, before arriving at the equally attractive coastal village of Staithes

Having walked about 4 miles so far, we’d worked up an appetite, and had some guilt free fish and chips at the Cod and Lobster. We then wandered around the narrow streets for a while

After leaving Staithes we joined the Cleveland Way for the climax of the walk, a magnificent cliff top walk all the way back to Runswick Bay.

The weather was overcast at times, but the views out to sea were fantastic nevertheless

We both agreed that this had been a 5 star walk
