|Clay Bank and Greenhow Bottom|
|Author: Claire, Published: 02 Jun 2013||Walk Rating:|
|North Yorkshire, N York Moors|
|A 3 mile circular walk from Clay Bank in the N York Moors. The walk has spectacular views throughout the journey across Greenhow Bottom, with its picturesque farms and Rosebury Topping as a backdrop. |
The route follows half well-made forest tracks and half mud bridleways/paths the latter of which can get very muddy in wet weather. There are no stiles or gates and the walk includes many climbs and descents, one climb being fairly steep. Approximate time 1.5 hours.
The walk starts from the Forestry Commission Clay Bank car park. From Great Brougton, head south on the B1257 for about three miles. The car park can be found on the left directly alongside the junction with the minor road signed to Ingleby Greenhow. Nearest post code TS9 6RF.
|Start to Forest Track|
Start point: 54.4242 lat, -1.1195 long
Leave the car park via the entrance gate and turn left down the minor road signed to Ingleby Greenhow. Follow the lane heading fairly steeply downhill and after about 0.3 miles, just after a left hand bend, look out on the right for a stone forest track heading uphill into the woods.
|Forest Track to Bridleway|
Start point: 54.4244 lat, -1.1129 long
Turn right onto this track and continue alongside the vehicle barrier. Follow the forest track heading steadily uphill. At the brow of the first climb, the trees on the left give way to provide great views across the valley below. In the distance on a clear day, you’ll be able to see the distinctive outline of Rosebury Topping (another great local walk for those seeking more of a challenge).
|Bridleway to View Point|
Start point: 54.4182 lat, -1.0945 long
Turn right opposite the gate onto the bridleway heading steeply up into the woods, marked with a blue arrow. Take care as you climb as the path can be very slippery when wet. At the top of the slope you’ll come to a crossroads of paths. Turn right here on the wide track heading more steadily uphill.
|View Point to End|
Start point: 54.4224 lat, -1.1065 long
Ingleby Greenhow is a large parish covering around 7,000 acres on the northern slopes of the Cleveland Hills, which shut it in completely on the south and east. The parish takes its name from the green hill at the south end (the term ‘how’ probably being derived from the Old Norse word haugr, meaning hill or mound). The hill slopes rapidly down from a height of about 450 metres into the deep hollow valley in front of you known as Greenhow Bottom. From this high view point, you get to appreciate the whole area, with views across 180 degrees. On clear days you’ll be able to see Rosebury Topping, the nearby wind turbines and, in the far distance, the industrial frontage at Redcar on the North East coast.

The post code on this walk is drastically wrong I live in North Yorkshire and it tells me it's a 5 hour drive?!

Good walk. Exactly 3 miles but app showed 4. Went in November and very muddy but fine for the adventurous :)

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
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!
