The Cleveland Way starts from a sculpture next to the car park, behind the toilets, adjacent to Helmsley Castle and follows a gradually inclining lane out of the town with views back to the walled gardens and Helmsley Castle.

track rising out of helmsleylooking back on helmsley castle

At the end of the track the walk turns left through a swing gate down to Blackdale Howl Wood.

swing gate at the end of Helmsley track

It is a well defined easy route that takes you past Griff Lodge and onto Whinney Bank before descending through Quarry Bank Wood to join the road to Rievaulx Abbey.

The diversion to the abbey is certainly worth doing given the time. Turn right just before Rievaulx Bridge to visit the abbey or cross the bridge to continue on the route.

bridge over the River Ryesignpost for Cold Kirby

There is now a section of walking along a narrow lane that can at times be busier than you think so please extra caution here. Just after the road turns to the left there is a wide opening to a track on your right and the route ahead along Bridge Road. The signpost indicates Cold Kirby 2mls.

Cote Moor Road track takes you back out of the village and on to Hambleton and the Hambleton Inn . From here and having crossed the A170 at the minor junction beyond the Inn it is a short distance to Sutton Bank and the great views towards the Yorkshire Dales and south across the Howardian Hills to York.

White Horse Gliding Club warning Roulston Scar 

The Cleveland Way turns left along the edge past the gliding club to visit the Kilburn White Horse before doubling back on itself to the National Park visitor centre at Sutton Bank. The white horse is OK close up but we would recommend seeing it from afar given the opportunity.

A request from the holiday fellowship.

Friend, when you stray, or sit and take your ease

On moor, or fell, or under spreading trees,

Pray, leave no traces of your wayside meal,

No paper bag, no scattered orange peel, nor daily journal littered on the grass;

Others may view these with distaste and pass.

Let no one say, and say it to your shame, that all was beauty here until you came. 

We think you can get a copy of the plaque on a card but the details of how to do so are obsecured by the concrete holding the plaque in place!
