Great Ayton to Guisborough – 13 October 2018

Ahoy shipmates, what do pies and Captain Cook have in common? Answer: They can both be found in Great Ayton.

Well, a statue of Captain Cook can be found, the man himself only went to school there, he lived on Aireyholme Farm about 1.5 miles from Great Ayton. One of the walks will pass close to the farm on their way to Roseberry Topping hopefully with backpacks filled with slowly cooling pies, okay perhaps just one or two that have been recently purchased from Petch’s Pie Shop on the High Street.

The club has been through the area quite a few times in the last couple of years the last time in July 2016, unfortunately, we didn’t take any pictures on that occasion so the image for this post was taken on a walk from Swainby to Great Broughton on a cold day in early March 2016. As we are moving further into October it might be just as cold, good thing we have all those hot pies to keep us warm.

So if you fancy a hot pie and a good walk to go with it you could always join us for a walk. You can contact us using the form on the Contact Page and you can find the walk descriptions here and the GPS routes here.
