This walk, over chalk grassland, remains relatively mud-free year-round.

 

Only the shorter of the two suggested routes is suitable for pushchairs. The longer route involves a very steep climb.

Toilets are located in Helen Gardens, adjacent to St Bede's School (Dukes Drive). A small playground is also located here.

There is a refreshment Kiosk (with undercover seating) at the start of the walk (see map).  

Dogs are welcome. Please keep them on a lead when walking next to the cliff edge. A bin for waste is located near the start of the walk - please pick up after your pet.
