The Ravenscar to Robin Hood’s Bay walk – more photos

I love this walk along the cliffs. It’s a bit up and down but the scenery is spectacular.

I love the patterns of these muddy cliffs. Erosion has created interesting shapes.

2nd World War pill box.

Great patterns in the rock shelving.

This glade of ferns is magical

  1. Hey Opher, these images take my mind back to an earlier time in my life when as part of a school Geography field trip to the North Yorkshire Moors we included Robin Hood’s Bay. Fantastic walk, superb scenery – the fishing village is also steeped in history, heritage, legends, and smuggling, and has excellent fish ‘n’ chips! Well worth a visit.

      1. Proper fish ‘n’ chips wasn’t an expensive meal in 1980 when I visited, else I’d never have been able to afford it. As I recall, we ate out several times rather than feast on fayre provided in our lodgings. Mind you, fish ‘n’ chips always tastes better when eaten by the sea, evermore so when in a scenic, windswept spot.

      2. Too true Dewin – and that is a delightful spot.
        Fish and chips used to be a cheap meal but not so much anymore – particularly there. Our local is much cheaper – but not as good!

      3. Speaking of enjoying food in different parts of the U.K, I once worked with a chap who’d drive from West Wales to Cornwall several times a year just to buy Cornish Pasties from a small local shop. He only bought pasties from one shop: pasties he considered to be the best in the South West.

        When I were a lad, Friday night was fish ‘n’ chip night, and we’d always buy takeaway from our local chippy: even wrapped in newspaper! Loved the taste then, love the taste now.

      4. We used to have a fish and chips night too! I had a friend (sadly dead now) who used to go down to a place in London to buy jellied eels and whelks!

I'd like to hear from you...
