Flamborough Walk - September 19th

Posted 20/9/2020

It was a very early start for some of DVWGs finest today heading for Flamborough for our coastal walk.

Whilst some of our party had opted to stay over on Friday night, it meant a 7am departure for others to arrive in time for the 9.30am start. But boy was it worthwhile.

Starting from South Landing we walked along the coast path, around to the lighthouse where we stopped for some quick refreshments and then heading for North Landing where we enjoyed some quite expensive ice cream. Although one of our party somehow managed to miss her mouth by quite some distance with the  ice cream.

We continued on to Thornwick Bay before taking the long footpath down past Grange Farm and into the village, walking through the village to South Landing and the end of our walk.

All through this lovely 8.8 miles walk Flamborough was drenched in superb autumn sunshine.

Thank you to the party of thirteen who came along for this one to enjoy this walk before going out separate ways. Some people went into nearby Bridlington whilst some stayed a little longer in Flamborough.

Finally a big congratulations goes out to Emily Kirk who became the latest DVWG regular to notch up 1000 miles walked with the group, quite an achievement for a 17 year old. 

Incidentally Emily’s first walk with DVWG occurred on October 31st 2009 when she completed our walk from Edale to Hope via Mam Tor, Hollins Cross, Back Tor and Lose Hill, she was just six years old at the time.
