This mainly traffic-free route starts at Redcar Central Station, which is right on Route 1. As you exit the station, turn left onto West Dyke Road until you get to the Coast Road. Here you turn right and join a path all the way to the pretty village of Marske. Marske was an RAF training camp during World War 1 and was where Captain W.E. Johns wrote the Biggles books.
The signed route continues along quiet roads through the village where it joins another path running alongside the railway from Windy Hill Lane, through allotments until it joins Milton Street. Here you turn left onto Marine Parade and follow it all the way round until you turn right onto Milton Street again. Saltburn station is on your left, the end of the route.
There’s plenty to do in Saltburn – with sweeping beaches, miniature railway and the Cliff Lift (the oldest in Britain), it’s a great place to spend an afternoon. Saltburn Pier is the last remaining Victorian iron-built pier on the north-east coast of England.
