Walks

We normally walk every first Sunday in the month. Walks are around 6/8 miles in length, medium difficulty, always ending up with a Sunday meal. For those with a big appetite don't forget your butty for the half-way stop we always have! 

Some walking groups are expensive to join but we only charge £1 per walk to cover admin expenses. Any surplus is put into the social fund so the cost always returns to the members.

New members are welcome to the first walk FREE of charge. The £1 fee is charged from the second walk.

We try to maintain a 6-month schedule of walks.

    Scarborough Weekend Away

    Led by Sheila &Twiggy

    Weekend Friday 8th. June to Sunday 10th June 2018

    Here's the plan for the Weekend Away of sunshine, sea, food, beer and a bit of walking:

    Friday Evening meeting at the ASK Restaurant, table booked for 7 pm, the restaurant is by the Harbour on Scarborough front.

    Saturday meeting at the front of Scarborough Spa 10 am to set off at 10.15am ish.

    There is a tram that goes down to the Spa if staying on the cliff top it starts running at 10 am.

    We are walking the Cleveland way to Filey it is approx 8 1/2 miles taking in two steady climbs.

    Only one climb is needed at the start to get out of Scarborough but mostly fairly flat with great views.

    The second descent is down to Cayton Bay for a lunch stop, there is a cliff top walk if anyone doesn't want to do this and meet at the same place after lunch, there is a snack shack here and toilets but would advise you to take your own food. As well as plenty of sea to paddle in.

    We then walk to Filey and get the bus back to Scarborough. If anyone wants to shorten the walk they can finish it early and get a bus from the Blue Dolphin Park back to Scarborough or to Filey which is at about 5/6 miles into the walk.

    Saturday Night is a BBQ at the Burniston Road campsite, will be about 6.30/7pm, if we all bring something like drink and snack things but will sort this out nearer the time.

    Buses from Scarborough drop off near to the camp-site. Sharing taxis to arrange only 2 miles out of the centre of Scarborough.

    Sunday is a walk along the old railway track out of Scarborough to Scalby and down to the coast, walking past the beach huts and around the seafront.

    Got a Bucket and Spade for everyone?ᅠ
