Coast to Coast path

For the more adventurous walker Hambleton is part of the famous Coast to Coast footpath, cutting right across the district. England's Coast to Coast footpath is made up by connecting together dozens of existing footpaths, bridleways, minor roads and other rights of way crossing the breadth of England, from St Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood's Bay in North Yorkshire. Thus, the Coast-to-Coast path is not actually a path in its own right, but a network of paths created by Alfred Wainwright.
