This page describes the Yorkshire Coast Path between Hull and Saltburn.
Filey Brigg: - the upper east coast is formed by a series of headlands and broad bays. Many of the headlands were settled in prehistoric times, though the North Sea is slowly eating away the land - as here at Filey Brigg.
This is not an official long distance path - though the northern section (north of Filey) is coincident with the Cleveland Way (see references below).
Description of the path
The rugged Yorkshire coast offers a spectacular variety of scenery - extending from the North York Moors in the north to Spurn Head in the south. Headlands and sandy bays and beaches combine until the land lowers into the sea at Spurn Head
The aim is to walk this section of coast - given family connections with Yorkshire and the undoubted interest and attraction and diversity of this section of English coast.
The route coincides with the Cleveland Way between Saltburn and Filey Brigg. South of Filey has yet to be explored but currently it appears that it is necessary to join existing public paths and possibly some beaches.
Passage places are Saltburn, Staithes, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Scarborough, Filey, Flamborough Head, Bridlington, Hornsea, Withernsea, Spurn Head and Hull.
