I know some people will have walked all of the CW in one go but some people like me, use it for day walks. I used the CW for a 5 mile walk at Sutton Bank in May 2004 and a bit of it on Urra Moor in July 2005 and this April,I walked from Scalby to Cloughton Wyke and back.

I've walked all of the CW and, yes, it's a beautiful walk.

A bit too far away for me for day-walks tho'. I've started to use Anglesey for that.

Silver Nab/Steeple Cross to Square Corner regularly as part of a circular walk from Kepwick; Sutton Bank stretch when I reckon I'm there before the touri; Cold Moor - Wain Stones - Hasty Bank - Clay Bank Top - Round Hill as part of a circular walk from Chop Gate quite often; finally: the whole lot 2 years ago.

I don't live that far away either!

I walked the whole path in January this year. It's a fantastic walk and well worthy of it's good reputation. The Cleveland Hills area (where it converges with the C2C) is still one of the best days walking anywhere for my money!

That's a lovely bit. I generally leave the car in the car park at Kepwick and walk up to Osmotherley and back through Thimbleby, the forest and the Siltons. A good morning's walk.

I parked in Osmotherly. I had a long joourney to get there along the narrow, twisty and steep roads via Hawnby.

I live further south so I just come up the A19 and hang a right, but I know those roads around Hawnby very well!

Yes, I have! But a while back. Not at this time of year due to ground nesting birds.

Yes, I have been there in autumn but I walk with a big dog and won't leave the path in nesting season. It's quite hard for the dog in nesting/lambing time as I have to tether her to my backpack! She is well behaved but I'm not risking having somebody taking a pot shot at her. To be fair, the farmers don't know that she's terified of sheep and the gamekeepers don't know that she lives amongst pheasants and has a total disinterest in game birds. Her major failing is rabbits. She thinks they want to play with her. So, this autumn, we'll pick up that track again and revisit!

I walked a bit more of it from the top of Cold Moor to Urra Moor summit last Sunday, and today i walked a bit from the stepping stones at Nettledale to Rievalaux Bridge, both as part of a circular walk.

Walked all of the cleveland way this june on my own apart from my small dog (my first Long distance walk)it was fantastic!, the best bits for me were Helmsley-sutton bank, started at 6am and the scenery was magical at that time in the morning, and definately osmotherley-clay bank top (the only time I saw any other walkers-they were all doing the coast to coast), had such a good time am going back in september to do helmsley-kildale section again!!

Well done Doug and i hope you get to finish the rest of the walk
Im heading off to do the walk in its entirety tomorrow and anticipate to be out on the trail for about 9 days.
Im just hoping the weather improves.
Its a pity that the walk is not more popular as its a gewm of an LDP.
It seems that the Coast to Coast get all the attention with people tending to head on that well worn trail as opposed to trying a better waymarked route.
I did the C2C a few years ago and enjoyed the trip but there are a lot of dull sections along the way but the C/W is spectacular from start to finish.
