RUCKSACK AND RAIL 0N THE  ESK VALLEY TRAIL

I have often thought that a comprehensive guide could be produced giving details of lots of walking opportunities letting the train take the strain and stopping off at various watering holes along the way. There was one many years ago giving details of all the Cameron’s houses along the railway. Later another was produced giving details of where one can hop off and back on the train with a walk in between. What I have tried to do is combine the two also making it easy for the less accomplished who have difficulty in reading maps.

All the walks are based on catching the 1030 Middlesbrough to Whitby train and the 1605 return.
