North Yorkshire Coast #1

[ Photo Gallery # 78 ]

After my three Photo Galleries displaying the delights of Whitby, my next two galleries will cover some of the delights of the Yorkshire coast further north, now named the ‘North Yorkshire and Cleveland Heritage Coast’.

It is not clear why this cobble has been named ‘Repus’, but it has been pointed out that the name spells ‘Super’ backwords!

  1. Beautiful photos Roland and I have walked further North up towards Alnwick, not sure whether it is part of this trail, but the isolation and beauty is something to treasure.


    • Thanks for commenting, Davy. The places featured in these particular photographs are all on the Cleveland Way, which is a 110 mile long National Trail running from Helmsley, along the Cleveland Hills on the northern edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, to the coast at Saltburn. It then follows the coast southwards to the Brigg at Filey.

  2. Lovely photos. They create nostalgia in this exile, living so far from the land he loves … and will probably never see again. I love the boat and the fishermen … and the villages are wonderful.
