East from Guisborough to Little Waterfall Farm, then south-east to join the Cleveland Way. South to Westworth Wood then south-east across High Moor to the road at Brown Hill. A horseshoe walk into Commondale and back to North Ings Moor, then continuing in a north-westerly direction to the edge of Guisborough Woods. After a visit to Highcliffe Nab, west to Hutton Village before returning to Guisborough via Hutton Hall. A 15-mile walk in Northern England.
The best map to use on this walk is the Ordnance Survey map of the North York Moors Western Area, reference OS Explorer OL26, scale 1:25,000. It clearly displays footpaths, rights of way, open access land and vegetation on the ground, making it ideal for walking, running and hiking. The map can be purchased from Amazon in either a standard, paper version or a weatherproof, laminated version, as shown below.

Two of many very good base layers from the Amazon Berghaus store. Available in a variety of colours and sizes. I often wear them together for extra warmth and insulation.
