Skelton History Group Walk – Guisborough alum works

Geotag Icon Show on map

Sunday 18th August – (12) Guisborough alum works

Distance: 4 miles; Ascent 690ft; Duration: 4-4½ hours

Meet at 10:30am in the Fountain Street car park. This walk begins with a long, uphill stretch to get to the quarries that once formed part of Belman Bank alum works. Recent tree felling has made the extent of these quarries clearly visible. We will then walk through the wood to Cass Rock quarry, where further evidence of alum working can be seen. Our return route (downhill all the way!) will be via Butt Lane.

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. On the longer walks, it is suggested that you bring food and drink as we usually stop between midday and 1:00pm for a lunch break.
