|Cloughton and Crook Ness|
|Author: Claire, Published: 11 Jun 2013||Walk Rating:|
|North Yorkshire, Scarborough|
|A 4 mile circular walk from the small North Yorkshire village of Cloughton. The walk follows the old railway line heading south and then cuts across to the coast via a quiet lane. After following a section of the Cleveland Way coastal path the route rejoins the old railway line to return to Cloughton. The route takes in a particular peaceful section of Yorkshire Coast, in an area generally less popular with tourists, taking in the views across horse paddocks, crops fields and the beautiful cliff rock formations and out across the North Sea. |
Three quarters of the route follows well-made paths (tarmac lanes and the old cinder track of the rail line) with the final coastal section following arable field edges which can be quite muddy. There are two gates (at the start and the end) and no stiles on route and just a few gentle gradients on the lanes. The only challenging parts of the route (and the reason for a difficulty rating of 3) are the flights of uneven rocky steps which take you down and up several ravines within the coastal path. Approximate time 2 hours.
Cloughton can be found on the A171 about 4 miles north of Scarborough. The walk starts from Station Lane – park on the roadside near the entrance to the old station tea room with consideration for the local residents. Approximate post code YO13 0AD.
|Start to Field Lane|
Start point: 54.3328 lat, -0.4458 long
Begin the walk from Station Lane and turn into the LNER Station Tea Room car park. Keep ahead passing the station buildings on the left.
|Field Lane to Cleveland Way|
Start point: 54.323 lat, -0.4395 long
The road climbs, then dips, then climbs and, as it begins to descend again, you’ll have great views ahead over the fields and out to sea. As you reach an arch of trees with the sign for Cliff Top House boarding kennels alongside, follow the main lane as it bends hard right.
|Cleveland Way to Salt Pans Lane|
Start point: 54.3268 lat, -0.4221 long
The Cleveland Way is a long distance path and National Trail. It is 110 miles long and follows a horseshoe shape from Helmsley to Filey. It was the second National Trail to be opened (back in 1969).
|Salt Pans Lane to Cinder Track Bridge|
Start point: 54.3421 lat, -0.4339 long
Follow Salt Pans Lane ahead climbing steadily. Continue until you pass a small electricity substation on the right and the stone walls of the old railway bridge just beyond it. Cross over the bridge, turn right immediately afterwards and right again down a flight of steps to reach the Cinder Track old railway.
|Cinder Track Bridge to End|
Start point: 54.3387 lat, -0.4433 long
Turn right again to follow the Cinder Track under the beautiful old stone arched bridge. Follow this section of the old railway under beautiful arches of old trees. You will pass out through a gate to reach Station Lane (with old Cloughton Station opposite) where the walk began.

Great walk done on a windy but sunny day. Tearoom at end an added bonus. Check which days it is open.

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!
