In October 2006 we stayed at Shearings' Royal Hotel in Whitby. Our first walk, on 21st October, started with a ride - on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway from Goathland to our starting place of Levisham. Walking up from Newton Dale we walked along the edge of Levisham Moor, down towards Newtondale Halt, through Forests and on to Howl Moor and Two Howes Rigg before descending after 10 miles into Goathland.
