The Burniston and Hayburn Wyke walk along the Yorkshire Coast

East from Burniston along Field Lane to the coast, then north on the Cleveland Way / England Coast Path all the way to Ravenscar Tearooms. South on the Cinder Track to Cloughton, then back to Burniston via the footpath alongside the A171. A 14-mile walk along the Yorkshire Coast.


The best map to use on this walk is the Ordnance Survey map of the North York Moors Eastern Area, reference OS Explorer OL27, 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.
