    just trying to post pics not mastered it yet
    [​IMG]
    this is the old railway track accessed from the sandsend carpark.

    you will pass this fence worth a chuck too its about 150yds along the track.

    rabbit hole north and south end its an easy flat fishing area
    [​IMG]
    keep on the track very easy walking
    [​IMG]
    looking back south to top of the world and bernies ledge (i think).this is an easy shoot to fish too.
    A little bit more hairy to fish than the rabbit holes.you can see a couple of lads on the top.

    just as you get to the tunnel,theres a fence look seaward and you will see a path to walk down.

    [​IMG]

    this picture has been taken with my back to the sea.

    this picture is from the same point,its a small ledge with steps cut into the rock to get down onto the rocks /beach
    this area has lots of fishy places north area morso .
    but you can fish from the ledge at high water. not sure about the catch rate from the ledge , but the rocks and gully's have there moments.

    Not too far Nick. Once you are at the top of the steps from the car park corner it's a steady 10 minute walk maximum. It's the steps and all your gear that's the killer though. Especially if you are unfit like me... :embarrass:

    Cheers mr lee. Does the path carry on further, don't think the dog will appreciate the drive from Marske for just a 20 minute mooch about.

    Can't say as I have ever walked any further past the footpath down to the shingle fishing area fella. Walkers meander further round past the tunnel area I think. The area down goat track you fish though is fantastic. To the left is a bit more level and like slate bed. Immediately infront of you from the steps though is rocky and looks bang on for cod and bass. To the right is a ledge that you can fish off easily, just beware of high waves. It's handy going down there at low water though to check what you are fishing over.

    The path goes up the side of the tunnel and many miles thereafter, all the way to Helmsley. Its the Cleveland Way.

    when you reach goat path area,

    continue to follow old NYR track @ 100yds,

    prior to tunnel (partly boxed in) turn right (assuming your heading from S/E)

    up a steep stone incline, up the steep steps, at the top you will come to a field.

    follow the dry stone wall taking in views of sea etc etc & you will go slightly

    inland & come to the south end of Goldsbrough fishing marks.( see marks topic for pics etc)

    keeping on the path (its actually all the Cleveland way section)

    passing all the marks, get downs (see if you can spot them) you

    come up to Kettleness, taking in the views /marks etc etc.

    either carry on to runswick or return back to S/E.

    Easy walk for both man & dog,

    plenty of info to take in if your intending a session or two

    along this section of coast.
