ThumbnailToday we say "tara" to the cliffs and to the Cleveland Way, to join the Yorkshire Wolds Way on the next leg of our journey. Follow the sea front path in Scarborough South Bay, and follow the route carefully after the Spa as you climb up to a road, then enter a wood. Keep to the cliffs, and eventually you'll drop down a wooded path to Cayton Bay, where there's a caravan park and yet another café. Cleveland Way walkers are starting to get excited around here, but your celebrations are some way off yet. Climb up onto yet more cliffs, and watch out for seals on the rocks far below. Keep on a seemingly endless path through yet another holiday park, and eventually you'll arrive at the monument on Filey Brigg marking the end of both the Cleveland Way and the Wolds Way. Make sure you offer to take celebratory photos of any walkers arriving here at the same time as you, but then head on towards Filey on the Wolds Way, through yet another caravan park and along Filey beach to the centre. Try and find the Wolds Way to the railway station, but it's difficult in the busy streets. The station is our destination for the evening, and as ever there are too many pubs and hotels around here to mention individually. Tomorrow - the chalkland of the Wolds Way beckons.
