Thanks for the information regarding the cinder track, if we are allowed to come we are booked in for the 1st week in September so may be done by then ?, as someone who lives in Whitby which fish and chip shop do you rate the best.
I see you are also a cyclist like me and having been in the area I know there are some big climbs although as a local you probably know the back lanes and easier rides.
Thanks for the info and the offer of a ride although I wont be bringing my bike this time, I may take you up on your offer when I come again, just a thought is there anywhere in Whitby that hires road bikes,( I know of the ones that hire hybrid/leisure bikes) to use on the cinder track. By the way I also am an old fart.
Thanks for your welcome guys. In answer to your query senior67, my home is in Whitby town itself and has been since about 1980. As it happens I walked to Robin Hoods Bay only yesterday via Golden Grove & Normanby Moor Top, Returning along the Cleveland Way, (a total of 15 miles). As a point of interest, The Cinder Track between Whitby Viaduct & Stainsacre is closed for resurfacing at the moment but hopefully it should be open again before too long.
