|Flamborough to North Landing|
|Author: , Published: 22 Dec 2015||Walk rating : Rating:|
|North Yorkshire, Flamborough|
|A 5 mile 'there and back' walk taking in the Flamborough Lighthouse and weather station, the arrow-shaped headland and a walk to North Landing, after optionally visiting the small beach at Flamborough (tide permitting). There are excellent coastal and countryside views on offer, and a very photogenic lighthouse. |
The walk has several steep climbs and descents, some with steps. Most of the paths are grass tracks and moorland style paths, so may be muddy after heavy rains. Caution is suggested if it is particularly windy as there is no shelter from the wind. The cliff top path is also used a by cyclists.
The Flamborough headland is clearly signposted (B1259) from Flamborough village. Flamborough village is reached from the B1229 if coming from Filey via Bempton or the B1255 if coming from Bridlington. Car parking is near the lighthouse and is pay and display with a maximum stay of three hours. Toilets are also provided in the car park. Nearest post code YO15 1AR.
|Start to Arrow Point Peninsula|
Start point: 54.1162 lat, -0.0826 long
On leaving the car park head down the tarmac path past the lighthouse (on your left). When you reach the weather station turn right and follow the path towards the arrow shaped headland. The headland is a very unusual and interesting shape. The lighthouse is trig point [TP8769 - SE97-INT006].
|Arrow Point Peninsula to Weather Station|
Start point: 54.1143 lat, -0.078 long
Return back to the weather station and enjoy the view from there. The weather station is also a trig point [TP7269 - FLA1]. If it happens to be foggy it may be sounding a fog horn.
|Weather Station (trig point) to Beach|
Start point: 54.117 lat, -0.0778 long
Make your way back to the lighthouse and pass it on your right. Take the steps/path down towards the beach. Tide permitting you can visit the beach by descending the steep metal steps. It is only a small beach, but you get a good close up view of the cliffs.
|Beach to North Landing View Point|
Start point: 54.1272 lat, -0.0949 long
Climb up the steps to the square platform area and take the path to the right. At the next junction turn right again. You will pass a war time pill box. Follow this path past the golf course, which is on your left. Once the path turns to the left keep looking back as you get excellent views of the lighthouse and cliffs.
|North Landing View Point to North Landing|
Start point: 54.1308 lat, -0.1042 long
Return back to the previous turning and carry straight on to North Landing. You may have a short time to explore, but remember the three hour limit on your parking.
|North Landing to Memorial Plaque and View Finder|
Start point: 54.1283 lat, -0.1052 long
Make your way back along the cliff tops the way you came. When nearly back at Flamborough, carry straight on (turning left will take you back to the beach). Note the interesting steps that were used for taking the ammunition to the pill boxes. The final stop is to look at the memorial plaque that commemorates a famous sea battle.
|Memorial Plaque and View Finder to End|
Start point: 54.1172 lat, -0.0839 long
From here you can see your destination, where the walk began. Before you leave the headland be sure to stop your car near the other lighthouse/tower/lookout station that is on the right as you leave the headland. This is also a trig point [TP3194 - S6327]. There is a space at the side of the road to stop (for a moment or two).

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!
