When we reached the ford just inside Mulgrave Woods the beck was too deep and fast flowing to cross safely, especially in view of the slime on the stones. So we retreated to High Leas and returned to Lythe.

Excellent walk with lovely views across farmland, woods and coast. Historic interest in Mulgrave Castle and good choice of refreshments in Sands End at a convenient two thirds of the walk's distance. Path along woodland between points 1 & 2 had been recently mown and easy to walk although track just after point 3 was fairly overgrown but passable. Saw several deer in the woods.
