|Filey and the Centenary Way|
|Author: DWY, Published: 26 Nov 2016||Walk rating : Rating:|
|North Yorkshire, Coast|
|A 4 mile circular walk from the coastal town of Filey in North Yorkshire. Filey is a charming seaside town with some dog-friendly stretches of beach, ideal for a good romp. If you and your dog need a bit more than a romp along the beach at Filey, this walk will give you an interesting route along green lanes and some touristy areas and also through fields along the Centenary Way. |
The terrain is fairly easy, relatively flat through fields and along tracks, green lanes and tarmac paths. There are two short road sections. Whilst most of the paths are enclosed or through crop fields, you will cross a couple of fields that are sometimes holding cattle. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates and a few stiles (which have gaps in the fencing that most dogs will squeeze through). If you want to extend the walk with a visit to the beach, dogs are permitted on the full beach from 1st October until 30 April. At other times they are allowed on the northern stretch from the lifeboat station up to Filey Brigg and on the southern stretch from beyond the beach chalets heading south. Allow 2 hours.
Filey is on the A1039, reached from the A165 Bridlington to Scarborough road. The walk starts and finishes from the West Avenue pay and display car park. From the town centre follow signs for the West Avenue car park, near the golf club. From the south end of the beach, head up the lane following the signs for West Avenue car park. Approximate post code YO14 9BE.
|Start to Roundabout|
Start point: 54.2031 lat, -0.2905 long
From the car park, head along the quiet lane towards Filey Golf Club. Just before the entrance, turn right following a public bridleway sign along a path next to the golf club perimeter fence. Now on the Centenary Way path, cross the railway bridge and continue through Mustan Grange caravan park, keeping ahead at the waymarked post to the left.
|Roundabout to Outgaits Lane|
Start point: 54.1994 lat, -0.3063 long
Using the traffic island, cross the road keeping the roundabout to the right, and follow a public footpath sign for Hunmanby and the Centenary Way. Pass through the small metal gate into a field and keep ahead to another metal gate with a stile to its left.
|Outgaits Lane to Moor Road|
Start point: 54.1864 lat, -0.3186 long
Just before the entrance to Wrangham Drive, cross the road to turn left along a green lane, marked with a green and white public footpath sign. Pass through a kissing gate onto another green lane, then go through another kissing gate. At a waymarker sign take a right over a beck into a field heading towards another kissing gate with a waymarker. Pass through the gate and continue towards a gap in the hedge into another field – the sign here requests that dogs be kept on a lead.
|Moor Road to End|
Start point: 54.1926 lat, -0.3005 long
Cross the road then turn left for a short distance on a tarmac path, before turning right at the sign for Lowfield Caravan Park – where there is also a public footpath sign. Keep ahead along the track, passing through Lowfield Farm and into the caravan park – where dogs should be kept on a lead.

I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
