Ahead the beautiful sandy Cayton Bay. Thankfully for us the rain has now stopped and we are covered in glorious sunshine. This section of the foreshore has suffered in recent years due to coastal erosion, leaving Pill boxes once high up on the cliff’s edge, down below on the sandy beach.
I was also interested to read that the Cayton village sent 45 men to the First World War, and 60 to the Second and that there was not a single fatality amongst the combined 105 men. With only one soldier suffering a serious injury during the First World War, then being subsequently spared by a German Officer. Thankfully it seems that Cayton is one lucky village.
Ahead is Lebberston Cliff our last assent before we head across the cliff tops to Filey Brigg, the end point for those walking the Cleveland Way.
