Drove past here today and the whole thing has been removed, no hide and the path has gone too. The car park now has Environment Agency signage and fencing. They’re obviously doing some major work there of some description. Real shame.

We chose to go here due to bad traffic on our route to Saltburn. There is a dearth of info as to whereabouts this is when googling in a hurry. We eventually found the small car park for 10-12 cars on the west side of...More
