YORKSHIRE COAST PATH
A guide to walking 120 miles of magnificent coastline from Redcar to the Humber
The Yorkshire coastline is the second most visited tourist destination in England – so why no walking guide to its entire length?
The Northumberland Coast Path has a walking guide devoted to it which sells in steady numbers, while a National Trail like the South-West Coast Path is walked by thousands of people every year. So why no guide to the full length of Yorkshire’s dramatic coastline?
Some of it comes under the Cleveland Way, though this is predominantly a walking route across the North York Moors. But from Redcar all the way south to Bridlington, and then on along Spurn Point on the Humber, is magnificent clifftop and seaside walking. The route takes in scenic holiday hotspots like Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Robin Hood’s Bay, not to mention steam railways, seabird cliffs and the home of Dracula.
Now Andrew Vine, an experienced walker and distinguished Yorkshire journalist, puts this right with the definitive walking guide, full of colour photos, and the whole route covered with OS large-scale maps. It is an essential purchase for the holidaymaker, the daytripper and local resident alike.
Andrew Vine was formerly Deputy Editor of the Yorkshire Post and still writes a weekly column for it. His previous books include Last of the Summer Wine. He lives in Leeds.
