• Cleveland Way Part Two

    The hope on this hot day was to walk from Clay Bank across to Kildale and then down into Saltburn, completing the moorland element of the walk and being ready for the coastal section.

    The moorland on this clear early morning is a delight with a gentle cool breeze, dew on the grass and the constant throaty sound of grouse bursting from their hiding places at the last moment. The so-called 'Glorious twelfth' beckons (Unless you're a grouse of course!) How different these moors will become then.

    A change comes at Kildale after a descent from the moors with the walking of the escarpment from the Captain Cook memorial to Roseberry Topping and then down to Slapewath. This is a transition to a more managed landscape. Finally a very urban environment is reached that culminates with a walk down the Skelton Burn and into the Victorian town of Saltburn... The coast has been reached.
