When walking country was moulded, the North York Moors was given more than its fair share of beauty - it has views, wooded valleys, babbling streams and near the coast, fabulous sea views across a beautifully punctuated coastline.

This walk is a short circular walk taking in some of the best views, but also passes through some of our oldest woodlands. It uses tracks and bridleways, with only a short section on metalled roads. Some of the tracks are ancient byways between settlements, and still use worn Yorkshire stone flags (paving stones) as the surface. Other parts can be quite muddy though, so in wet weather, wear suitable footwear.

The route itself starts at the edge of Fylingthorpe village, which has pubs, shops and car parking. It starts along a disused railway line, before cutting across fields and farm tracks up into the local countryside. Highlights include the spectacular views across Robin Hoods Bay and the North Sea, old and knarled woodlands, a beautifully renovated water mill (private house), passing through the old school community of Fylingthorpe Old Hall before following in the footsteps of the ancients across the fields towards Fylingthorpe.

This is a short and easy, but exceptionally rewarding walk for lovers of beautiful countryside.

Did this walk on 2/10/05 whilst on holiday in Whitby area. Really enjoyed it and and as novice walkers it met all expectations from the description - the old water mill was a highlight! However our only comment was we easily found waymark 6 but stuggled to get to waymark 7!! We found directions slightly confusing and even the tractor driver who was ploughing the field pictured in 7 didn't know where that gate was or was he being deliberately obtuse as the footpath, we now know, ran diagonally across his ploughed field? Still the cows in the previous field enjoyed the entertainment as we retraced our steps a few times to check if we had gone awry earlier.
