The Cleveland Way winds for over a hundred miles around the North York Moors National Park, from the ancient moorland town of Helmsley to finish on the seafront at Filey. Along the way it takes in splendid coastal towns and villages like Staithes and Whitby, wild empty heather moorland, a blaze of purple in late-summer, dramatic coastline and clifftops, and stunning historic sites like Rievaulx Abbey. Whether you...re interested in the industrial history of ironstone mining, or a weekend stroller seeking a coastal walk from the seaside resort of Scarborough, this book, published in association with Natural England which waymarks the National Trails, is the only companion you need
IAN SAMPSON lives in Helmsley at the start of the Cleveland Way. For 16 years he was an official of the North York Moors National Park.
