Skelton History Group

Sunday 22nd July – Smugglers & Seabirds
Distance: 4½ miles; Ascent 1065ft; Duration 3½-4 hours Meet at 10:30am in Cat Nab car park (NZ 668 215) at Saltburn. This is a pay-and-display car park, so have plenty of change with you. Our route takes us past the Ship Inn (one time home of the mastermind behind the local smugglers) onto the cliff-top plateau. Here we complete a circular route using the Cleveland Way National Trail, together with field paths and farm tracks. Heritage along the way includes the Coastguard cottages, a Roman signal station, the Guibal fan house and metal sculptures.
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.
