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.
The Hummersea circular beach walk is a short circular walk from Skinningrove to Hummersea and back along the cliff path. The walk has fossiling places; beach cut harbours and sites of interest. The walk is flat but with a steep ascent to the cliff top using steps. Ideal for the walker but it may only be suitable for families if the circular is curtailed and 'there and back' along the beach approach is used due the steepness of the steps.
The aim of this walking guide is to provide circular beach walk combining the passions of fossil hunting and beachcombing for Whitby Jet, with the sight seeing of the numerous historical sites of interest that lie on our beaches.
The guide indicates the places where to find Whitby Jet, ammonites and other fossils, whilst taking in leisure and historic sites of interest such as scenic harbours, industrial 16th century alum mines, shipwrecks, coastal views of waterfalls and picturesque fishing villages.
