Summary: The terrain covered by the Lamburgh Loop walk is predominantly through native woodlands and on the open uplands and pine forests of the North York Moors though parts are walked along sandy coastland paths and on paths across high cliff edges. From the beginning of the walk in the tourist honeypot of Saltburn-by-the-Sea the walk goes by way of the north-east coast line past Hunt Cliff, Cattersty Cliff and the coastal village of Skinningrove to Hummersea Scar from where the route turns inland via Loftus, Handale and Liverton to the climb on to Liverton Moor which leads to Danby High Moor. A succession of moors are crossed going northwards in a line parallel to the east coast before reaching Gisborough Woods. The woodland, a mix of pine rows and deciduous natives is walked through before the walk climbs to the high point of the loop on the famous heights of Roseberry Topping which though small in stature is proud in profile. The hill is locally called Middlesbrough's Mountain. From Roseberry Topping the loop descends abruptly to Newton under Roseberry and then the loop climbs again to Eston Beacon on Eston Moor. Afterwards the way follows paths across agricultural land, through woods and through quaint minor dales to the the finish back in Saltburn-by-the-Sea.
