The Wild Beauty of the Coast to Coast Path

Clain Wood - Swainby - Coast to Coast

Clain Wood, Swainby, Coast to Coast

Clain Wood is an attractive conifer woodland at the foot of Whorlton Moor, one mile from the town of Swainby in the North Yorks Moors. The Coast to Coast path, Cleveland Way and the Lyke Wake Walk each share a route through the woodland. Wooden posts and wayside stones indicate the route, the Cleveland Way with its white Acorn on black, the Coast to Coast with a blue arrow on white and the Lyke Wake with LWW stone inscriptions.

The upper section of the woodland is part of a private estate and the three routes, all sharing the same path, keep to the lower section. The Woodland is particularly attractive near its north eastern end where it fringes the Scugdale Beck before crossing some fields to pass over the beck's ford near Hollin Hill and Swine Park.

There is a memorial stone in memory of Bill Cowley on the woodland path near to where it drops down towards a dismantled railway before turning south east. Bill Cowley is the person who created the Lyke Wake Walk, which is a challenge route starting at Osmotherley and finishing at Ravenscar, i.e. a west to east traverse of the North Yorks Moors.
