3a. A wild and  windy walk from Sandsend to Sandsend Ness,  Kettleness and back to Sandsend

 Whitby and Scarborough Index

To do a linear walk, but return by the same route gives you the maximum of sea views!

Looking towards the point of Sandsend Ness.


The coast nearer Sandsend Ness, you walk from what was Sandsend station along the bed old the old coastal railway track.


Just inland from the old railway embankment there are huge quarries from the alum mining operations.


You climb up onto the old railway line embankment  from the car park by the sea below the building that was Sandsend Station. En route to Kettleness, the bed of the disused railway track forms the first part of the walk, and you clearly see the waste from the old industrial alum mine workings where little grows. The trees bend inwards! and the old railway tunnel looks forlorn and forgotten!


Sandsend Ness



At Kettle Ness point you see right across to the village of Runswick Bay.


The site of some of the coastal industrial workings at Kettleness where there was an alum works.


Looking south-east from Kettleness down the coast towards Whitby.


The old village station at Kettleness.


On the return you notice how the railway was carved through the 'hills of the cliffs' with Whitby in the distance.


The bay of Sandsend Wyke.


Sandsend beach.



Looking across to Whitby and you can just make out the Abbey.
