Cleveland Way National Trail
More recently this region was home to explorer Captain James Cook, who grew up near Roseberry Topping. The moors are a place of wild beauty, lush with purple heather in summer, and home to red grouse and curlew.
The rugged coastline, from Saltburn-by-the-Sea to Filey, is a place of craggy beauty and isolated fishing villages, such as Staithes and Robin Hoods Bay. Captain Cook first set out to sea from the port at Whitby, and his ships were built there.
There are links from the Cleveland Way to two more Long Distance Paths: the Wolds Way and the Coast to Coast Walk.
