Day 7 (continued) Robin Hood’s Bay. Smugglers, Fishermen, Sea Captains, Dinosaurs, Rescued by a Rocket, Me and my Shadow.

Post 191: 8 September 2017. A Walk around and from Robin Hood’s Bay, A Drive over the Best Heather Moorland

We began the steep ascent out of Robin Hood’s Bay and passed a cast-iron Victorian water fountain. Not as convenient a water supply as now.

We passed an information board at the top of the hill.

We turned right after one of the many colourful bed and breakfast establishments.

Fuchsias were in flower.

It is so important to keep looking back on walks for fine retrospective views.

An information board reminded us of the dangers of the coastline hereabouts. I wouldn’t have wanted to be rescued by a rocket!

We followed the coastal footpath for about 2 miles until we reached a path that led inland towards Hawkser Bottoms.

On reaching the dismantled railway we headed back towards Robin Hood’s Bay, past National Trust Land.

Clouds were starting to form. It was time to be on our way after what was a lovely short, easy, but interesting walk.

Surprisingly it was now 3.30pm. There was no time to dilly dally as I had my favourite drive over the Moors lined up.

Robin Hood’s Bay easily qualifies for inclusion in ‘My Best of 31 years of walking in Yorkshire condensed into 8 days.’ and I think Victoria agreed.
