Carr Ridge, Ingleby Greenhow, Coast to Coast

Carr Ridge is the easterly finger of Urra Moor near Ingleby Greenhow, and is part of the Coast to Coast walk (sharing with the Cleveland Way) between Clay Bank and Round Hill. It is easily accessed from Clay Bank, where there is a large car park. A swift climb along the easily travelled Cleveland Way paving flags will bring you to the ridge top, where the path changes to dry grit on a fairly level path, with ferns each side and heath beyond.

Looking back, as the path levels off, there is an inspiring view of the Coast to Coast path climbing up Hasty Bank. As you progress along the ridge the bulk of the Moor looms in the background, and the steep moorland cliffs overlooking Urra are easily made out. Carr Ridge eventually ascends to the summit of Round Hill, which is the highest part of the North Yorkshire Moors.

Greenhow Plantation blankets the steep descent from the moor on your left as you walk along the ridge and there are majestic views across across the small farmland plain below with an equally steep forested climb back to the ridge top, just half a mile distant.
