Skelton History Group Walk – Boulby from above

Saturday 27th July – (19) Boulby from above

Distance: 4 miles; Ascent 720ft; Duration: 4-4½ hours

We meet at 10:30am in Boulby lane (NZ 760187), where there is ample roadside space to park cars. We will head over to the Cleveland Way coastal footpath and then turn left and walk along it towards Loftus. After a couple of miles, we then leave it and take field paths across to the Street Houses road and follow this back to our cars. The walk will take about 3-3½ hours. Along the way will pass sites relating to the alum industry, ironstone mining and WW1 air-raid warnings. There are no facilities of any kind on this walk.

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.
