A-Walk: Lazenby to Guisborough (2012-01-29)

On Sunday, 29th January 2012, SRC member Jill Johnson (pictured below) led a group of seven energetic A-walkers on an exciting trek from Lazenby to Guisborough.

Walk Leader: Jill Johnson

Our route took us from Lazenby across Eston Moor and The Flatts in order to reach Newton-under-Roseberry. From here, we went along the Cleveland Way (CW) in an easterly direction to Slapewath where we joined the Cleveland Street (CS) footpath. We followed this in a north-easterly direction to {NZ 648 164} where we took a northerly path that led us up to Airey Hill Lane {NZ 649 173}. We now re-joined the CW (again) which took us back towards Slapewath. At {NZ 640 164} we left the CW and made our way to Waterfall Farm and then Low Waterfall Farm. We now rejoined the CS footpath (again) which took us into the centre of Guisborough.

We set off at 9.42 am and finished our trek at 16.10 - giving us an overall elapsed time of 6 hours 27 minutes. During this time we covered a distance of 17.6 miles and had three good climbs - Eston Nab, Roseberry Topping and Hutton Gate. We had a single refreshment stop at 13.15 in the disused quarry at Highcliff Nab {NZ 609 139}.

Thanks to Jill for an exciting walk and a wonderful day out.

Many thanks to Jane Thompson and Phil Barker for taking the photographs.
