East Yorkshire and Derwent Area Ramblers

walking to protect our local countryside

Strong winds ceased and replaced by pleasant weather conditions as 12 members arrived at Hutton Buscel for this 8th and final stage of the Yorkshire Castles Way. Setting off on a 10.5 mile route, led by Tony Corrigan with a destination of Scarborough Castle.

Out of the village and across fields to West Ayton for a viewing of Ayton Castle [remains] before moving on to Forge Valley and a coffee stop. A short ascent into Raincliffe Woods to continue through them for 1.5 miles before descending to cross Low Road, then around fields to reach Sea Cut water course, joining The Tabular Hills trail.

After a bank side lunch stop, the group continued to Newby and followed the cycle trail to Dean Road cemetery and into Peasholm Park. Finally, uphill and along Queens Parade for good views across North Bay whilst walking to Scarborough Castle and the end.

Not quite - as a reward of tea and cakes was enjoyed at Walkers Cafe - aptly named!
