Old Saltburn to Warsett Hill walk

Walking

Starting in the Victorian seaside town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea, this walk has many interesting features. Though the area may seem like a natural landscape when enjoying the coastal wildlife, man has had a significant impact on it.

Enjoy fantastic coastal wildflowers such as the pyramidal orchid

During the late 19th century much of the area was mined for iron stone. Some fascinating remains from these industrial days can still be seen at Warsett Hill. For those who prefer man's more artistic creations, there are sculptures along the way too.
