A walk that starts from one of the car parks between Redcar and Marske, providing an opportunity for a short section of coastal walking before heading inland.
The walk between Marske and Errington Woods initially follows the road (Marske High Street), before continuing along a track.
There is an easy to follow track through Errington Woods, before taking the track and footpath to Upleatham.
From Upleatham some road walking is involved in order to reach St. Andrew's Old Church.
