Saltburn to Skinningrove, North Yorkshire – June 2022

This was a short break away for a few days and the walk started near The Ship pub in Saltburn-by-the-Sea. Park in the Saltburn Miniature Railway car park – you’ll have to pay!

Climbing up and then along the cliffs… it’s great to see wildflowers in bloom.

It was a day for dramatic clouds and blue skies with seagulls wheeling above:

There’s a fascinating tribute to the industries, interests and trades of the area – mining, fishing and pigeon racing being some of them.

You’ll also see the train line which once linked Saltburn to Skinningrove, but now re-purposed to serve the nearby British Steel plant:

Then the descent to Skinningrove Bay…

  1. Another gorgeous walk, Aidan. The coast looks so unspoilt and those beaches are magnificent. How wonderful they haven’t been commercialized.

  2. Funnily enough it was a heavily industrialised landscape in rhe past but nature has robustly taken over since the end of mining and steelmaking, Val.
    Regardless, it’s a top walk and I encourage everyone to try. Just get there early!
