|Photographic Walks in North Yorkshire
plan is to gradually document a number of my favourite local walks that
incorporate (what I consider to be!) good viewpoints for landscape
photography. The first of these is shown below. The linked pages
provide a route map, downloadable route description and .gpx route file
(that may be used on your smartphone or tablet with aplications such as
the excellent Viewranger, or Google maps) and a set of images taken
along the route.
||Kildale Circular : 4.7 miles
medium length circular walk, starting and finishing just outside the
village of Kildale. Photographic highlights include several viewoints
looking out over the Cleveland Hills escarpment, fine views of
Roseberry Topping from Cockshaw Hill, woods that are particularly
beautiful in autumn and a small waterfall.
Refreshments avaliable at the Glebe Cottage (licensed!) cafe in Kildale
||Goathland Waterfalls : 7.1 Miles
A circular route
with a number of moderate climb and some potentially muddy riverside
tracks. It visits four of the large waterfalls around Goathland, with
many other smaller falls and rapids worth viewing. There are also good
vantage points for the North Yorks Moors Railway, if you choose the
correct times to see the trains. There is a nice combination of some
moorland scenery near the start and finish with riverside paths through
the centre section.
Refreshments available at seceral cafes in Goathland and at the Birch Hall Inn in Beck Hole
|Around Roseberry Topping : 5.5 Miles|
circular walk around Roseberry Topping - avoiding the most popular
routes! The woods at the start of the walk have a spectacular carpet of
bluebells and wild garlic in spring, and glorious colour in autumn.
They are criss-crossed by paths giving you plenty of opportunities to
explore. After a short section on roads the route climbs onto the moors
for a stretch, with fine open views, before dropping back down with a
beautiful view of the back of Roseberry Topping – which is particular
photogenic during autumn & winter sunsets.
Note: Walking without the proper preparation can be a dangerous
undertaking. Information and downloads on this website are
provided free of charge; it is each walker's
responsibility to check the material and use accordingly. My walk
reports are not route guides and should not be treated as such. They
are written with personal reflections of my walks. Always carry the
appropriate maps and let someone know where you are going and expect to
