The south east corner of the North Yorks National Park is quite different from the bare boggy moors to the north and west, being mostly woodland and valleys. We are at West Ayton which is about 6 miles west of Scarborough. We had a good walk down the Forge valley, a big section of which is a nature reserve with a 2 mile board walk in the boggy valley bottom.
Scarborough was to far to walk for the day, but now having bikes it made it easy. We did a 24mile round trip including walking 2 mile along the busy proms. The English sea side holiday is still alive and kicking.
Now off to peas pudding land Yippee!!
