Coast to Coast day 12: Blakey to Littlebeck


Almost there…just two days to go. This was another pleasant if rather grey day, we got the first (and only) real rain for the entire walk, it bucketed down not long after we left Blakey Ridge.

The route starts with a bit of a road bash across the moors – there wasn’t much traffic thankfully – and then follows a vehicular track into Glaisdale. From here there was a very muddy section through East Arncliff Wood before entering Egton Bridge. A short walk then leads into Grosmont on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, with plenty of steam trains operating to keep both young and old enthusiasts happy.

A steep climb afterwards before levelling out and providing the first views of the east coast and north sea, with a fine prospect down towards Whitby. After this, a short walk downhill into Littlebeck. We didn’t go right down into the village as we were staying at Intake Farm, along with another seven c2c’ers making for a packed dining table that night.

(Total distance approx. 17 miles)
