19. Walking from Skinningrove continued

Climbing up the well laid out Cleveland Way on the path south-east out of Skinningrove. The small community of ~460 people is sandwiched between towering sea cliffs, which in the case of Boulby Cliffs, rise to a height of 666ft/203m and the houses are clustered around the iron stained Kilton Beck.

 

Is this an old watchtower-pillbox from the 2nd World War.

 

The fields along the coast are quite fertile and much grain is grown - very much needed as we head for a post-carbon oil economy! This is spectacular aerated walking!

 

Looking back up the coast down to Skinningrove.

This is superb coastal walking along a really clear path, part of the Cleveland Way.

 

 

The National Trust site of Loftus Alum Quarries. A few layers of stones are visible, but the site is mainly spoil heaps!

 

The Alum quarries near Boulby Cliffs.

 

The grey shale debris from the alum quarrying. The pink waste is from the firing of the alum minerals.

 

The dramatic steep quarry face and alum mining debris below it.

 

Looking down on the old alum workings and spoil heaps below Boulby Cliffs

You can see some of the stone walls from the alum industry - a bit of industrial archaeology!

 

 

In the mist, Boulby Cliffs above the quarrying for Alum

 

The view from Boulby Cliffs west towards Staithes and Cowbar

 

The Loftus Alum Quarries at Boulby Cliffs are under the care of The National Trust.

 

You can still see some of the stonework of the walls of the Loftus Alum works.

 

The old trig point on the top of Boulby Cliffs

 

Looking towards Cowbar Nab as the weather deteriorates!

 

Looking back towards Skinningrove from near the top of Boulby Cliffs as the weather clears again.

 

Looking west to Cowbar and Staithes.

 

The spectacular high cliffs of Boulby over which the Cleveland Way passes from Skinningrove to Cowbar.

 

The Boulby Cliffs from Cowbar Nab.

 

 

Looking across the fields to Boulby Potash Mine

 

The car park at Cowbar.

 

Looking down into Staithes on the road down from Cowbar.
