Kind of agree with Norm on this.

If you are looking to do this walk in 5-6 weeks from now and you are experienced walkers then you should have a fair idea if you can do a 110 mile walk in 8 days.

I would hoped that you checked for accomodation points along the way if you set yourself for 8 days. As for distance, you will average 14-15 miles per day. Only you know if you can do that kind of distance day in day out.

Personaly I have done that kind of distances on the Cotswold way for a week and it felt more like work than enjoyment. Distances of that magnitude tend to become tedious after a while, especialy if you are doing this for pleasure and not as a challenge.

As for the weather, you have to be prepared for anything and in the north of England you tend to get anything.

I just covered the Cleveland Way in just over 8 days and every day was wet,windy and cold and that just after all the record breaking temps in July.
Its a tough old walk in places but 8 or 9 days is a reasonable time limit.
Good Luck.

We've gone with 9 days (the 9th till the 17th) and we're REALLY hoping that the weather clears out nicely for it... especially becuase we're camping.

visit the following website,

I find it is fairly accurate and I agree with the previous replys, expect wind and rain and be pleasantly suprised if you get sun!

As regards the weather, I agree with previous postings that you could experience almost anything in September, but the autumnal colours that will have begun to appear on the North York Moors and this could really add to your walk. Be prepared with woolly hat and gloves!

Whether it is tough for you or not will depend entirely upon the (unpredictable) weather, how much you have decided to carry and your level of fitness at the start.

My children (aged 9 and 11) skipped the whole route without so much as a blister (over Spring Bank Holiday 2001), but we had chosen to use three main camps and then the unenvironmentally friendly option of two cars to manage each leg, walking only with small day bags.

Our Cleveland Way was a marvellous experience, marred only by the fact that one day our 'return' vehicle had been broken into in broad daylight on the main car sea-front car park on a wet day in Saltburn.

When you reach Filey you could always carry on along the Wolds Way all the way down to the Humber Bridge!

Good luck and I hope that the weather is as kind to you as it was to us.

it is maybe to late for my sixpeneth i would think you are committed now one way or another, i have just been looking in my notes and see we have had good weather in all the autumn months when we have been walking on the north York moors and even in Febuary but you cannot quarantee the weather. go prepared for the worse and hope for the best
all the best
