• Cleveland Way Part Three

    Rising from the beach at Saltburn, behind the smugglers' haunt of the Ship Inn by steps that lead to the marker stone of 'Cleveland Heritage Coast, is a fine start to the walk. The route onwards along the cliff top is easy walking on a level path attended by the wheeling gulls and ripening hedgerow fruits.

    As the railway, serving the Boulby Potash mine and Skinningrove Ironworks, swings in from the west to loop around Warsett Hill the path becomes hemmed between the railway line and the ever-eroding cliff edge.

    This narrows considerably at the head of the loop where the walker feels that a few 'heavy' storms would see the path disappear over the cliff. The erosion hereabouts is substantial with a Roman signalling station having finally fallen into the sea in the early part of the 20th Century.

    Beyond the narrowest point, the 'Charm bracelet' sculpture sits on a small promontory representing local industry and folklore.
