It's a long time since I've done the Cleveland Way, 1983 was the last time. I would like do it again sometime this year. Is anyone doing the walk this year.

I am thinking about it and linking it up with the Yorkshire Wolds Way but if I do it is likely to be later in the year as I am thinking about doing the WHW/GGW in April/May time - to miss the midges!

My wife and I are walking the Cleveland Way in late May this year. We have just about booked all our accommodation. We walked the C2C in 2006 and got the LDW "bug". Last year we again crossed over from Vancouver Island (actually an island off of Vancouver Island)and walked St. Cuthbert's and the Dales Way.

After we finish the Cleveland Way,as a change of pace, we plan to stay in one place (Haworth, on the other side of Yorkshire) for the second half of our English visit and take daily 15-20 mile hikes in the area. Hopefully, we can cover a large chunk of the Liverpool & Leeds canal in this way.

I am thinking of doing it this year i.e. 2009 and combining it with the Yorkshire Wolds Way, likely to be after May sometime.

I have a fortnight earmarked for mid May and have the Coast to Coast in mind, although this is my 5th crossing. However The Cleveland Way is still tempting me, along with The Missing Link and The Ebor Way.This would make a excellent 200 mile trek and would be easy compared to The Coast to Coast. I'm back-packing and wondering about any camp-sites on the Ebor Way.

Any information regarding The Ebor Way would be welcomed.

as far as i can remember camping sites were hard to find on the Ebor Way, only ones that come to mind are at York near Rowntrees Park and one at Sutton-on-Forest, Maybe a look on the ordnance survey maps might reveal more
all the best with your walking

the cleveland way ; possibly one of the most disappointing LDWs ; just not right ; some nice day walks ; but doesn't work as the complete piece.

But, it's a lovely walk, A great contrast to being a moors and coast. The beauty of it is it can be done in a week, it's not disappointing by any means.

There is the town of Helmsley, the White Horse, the Drover's Road, Mount Grace Priory, The Cleveland Escarpment with lovely stretching views to the North, Roseberry Topping, Saltburn by the Sea, Staithes, Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Ravenscar, Scarborough and Filey. I've done the Cleveland Way twice and always enjoyed every moment of it, don't forget it was there before the over-rated Coast to Coast Walk which is getting hammered to death and Julia Bradbury is not helping it either.
