Scarborough Sea CutM016
- A Scarborough inland walk
- Lovely woodlands
- Along the ‘cut to the sea’
Away from the beaches there is a lovely walk from Scarborough along the old sea cut – a raised platform above a canal which is used exclusively as a means of removing excess water to the sea from the River Derwent ie: a cut through to the sea. The walking though is excellent as are the paths that wind through Raincliffe Woods on the return trip. Raincliffe Woods is almost an adventure playground with a myriad of paths interlinking with cycle ways and orienteering options throughout its length – the only thing missing being an official Go Ape site! Still for a walk that is not on sand or high coastal cliffs this is one of the best around.
Recommend: I think this would be excellent on a cold, frosty/snowy winter day – not sure why but I think it would be!
