On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Scarborough to Filey

The starting point is Scarborough train station. Turning right out of the train station walk towards Valley Bridge. Cross the road and turn left down Somerset Terrace, crossing over the roundabout continue onto Falconers Road. Descend to the beach either by the tramway, steep steps or path and heading South, walk the beach or the Foreshore past the Scarborough Spa. Continue until the beach comes to an end and ascend Holbeck Hill and pick up the clifftop walk with signposts for the Cleveland Way. Walk through the woods at Osgodby then drop into Cayton Bay which is beautiful whatever time of the year you visit. It is a favourite with surfers, bird watchers and fossil hunters or those who just want to relax and admire this area of unspoilt natural beauty. Following onwards towards Castle Rocks and Yons Nab near Lebberston Cliff, you then carry on along past The Wyke, gradually descending until the Cleveland Way reaches its end. Turn right along the path to Filey, or walk towards the end of Filey Brigg and if the tide is out, walk the remaining distance from Filey Brigg towards Filey. At very low tide in Filey a ridge of rocks known as the Spittals, half way along the Brigg and stretching out to sea in a south east direction, can be seen and it has often been said that it is the remains of a Roman pier!
