This guide book is for 'The Scalby Ness Moonscape Beach Walk' from the "One Walk, Fossiling Beach Walks - Fossils, Flotsam, Jetsam and Whitby Jet hunting on the beaches of the Yorkshire Coast", series of guide books, whose theme is "Fossiling Beach Walks on the Yorkshire Coast. This book will appeal to those who fell walk or sight see in the North York Moors and are interested in fossils, Whitby Jet and beachcombing flotsam and jetsam.
This walk is called the Scalby Ness Moonscape beach walk since the first stretch of beach walking is across a fractured rock landscape more akin to the lunar landscape seen on the surface of the moon, and it officially starts at Scalby Ness. It is arduous in places.
