Route of the Esk Valley Railway

Ruswarp

Ruswarp is a village on the boundary of the National Park. It has a range of shops and a pub. Crossing the River Esk downstream is an impressive viaduct, 120 feet high, which was built (using 5,250,000 bricks) to carry the Scarborough-to-Whitby railway line, which was closed in 1965. The viaduct is now owned by Sustrans and carries "The Cinder Track" (a walk/cycleway along the former Whitby-to-Scarborough railway line).

Walks

Photograph Alan Wastell There is a pleasant and physically undemanding walk between Ruswarp and Whitby (approximately 1 miles) mostly along a stone pannierway, know as Monks Trod. The walk is signposted from the main street in Ruswarp. Follow the Esk Valley Walk signs to Whitby.
