Robin Hood's Bay Car Park
Robin Hood's Bay Road, Whitby, North Yorkshire, YO22 4QN
Once famed for smuggling, Robin Hood’s Bay is an atmospheric old fishing village. Steeped in history, the winding streets and picture-postcard cottages tumble down to an expansive coastline ideal for stargazing.
Walking by the light of the full moon here is totally magical. On clear nights, you’ll still see huge star-filled skies out to sea. But this event is so much more than a night walk.
We’ll travel along an atmospheric disused railway track, through woodland with hints of views out to sea. In this section, we’ll introduce some mindfulness to ‘fine tune’ your senses to everything around you.
We’ll intersperse this with some celestial and deep history observations about what you are looking at and walking on. The North York Moors really is Jurassic Park – have been almost entirely laid down during the Jurassic. we’ll be walking on the boundary between the Triassic and Jurassic at the end.
This event is co-hosted by Alison from Adventures for the Soul and AFS Mountaineering.
Whether we see the stars or not, walking at night has many benefits and is an incredibly powerful way of reconnecting you to nature. Obviously, we cannot guarantee clear skies or the weather!
We’ll aim to finish at the pub opposite the car park where we can have a warm hot chocolate!
