Tuesday 24th April – Selby Hagg and Saltburn alum works

Distance: 4 miles; Ascent 490ft; Duration 3-3½ hours Meet at 10:30am in Cat Nab car park (NZ 668 215). This is a pay-and-display car park, so have plenty of change with you. This out and back route will take us up Saltburn Gill to the site of Selby Hagg alum works. From there, as we retrace our steps through the Gill, we will be following the route taken by the alum liquor as it made its way to the alum house at Saltburn. Although mostly on level ground, there are two or three steep ascents/descents (inevitable given the narrow, wooded gorges in our area).

The pace of the walks is leisurely, with regular stops to admire the view (especially when going uphill!) and to hear about the heritage around us.

A charge of £2 per person will be made on each walk to offset the costs of Insurance. Please wear appropriate footwear and have clothing suitable for the likely weather conditions on that day. It is suggested that you bring food and drink as we usually stop between midday and 1:00pm for a lunch break.
