The Wild Beauty of the Coast to Coast Path

Whorl Hill, Swainby, Coast to Coast

Whorl Hill, Swainby, Coast to Coast

Whorl Hill is a wooded, rounded, dome shaped hill between Faceby and Whorlton and contains a circuitous walk around its summit from where there are amazing views over the Vale of Mowbray. To the south there is a splendid view over to Round Hill and Live Moor, on the edge of the North Yorks Moors, where the Coast to Coast walk and the Cleveland Way pass.

Legend has it that Whorl Hill is the home of a wyrm dragon that had toxic breath and breathed fire, and that it regularly flew across the local farmland, destroying crops and livestock by burning and poisoning them. It could, apparently be placated by feeding it the fresh milk of nine cows each day. The dragon was eventually slain by a knight who happened upon the village (Whorlton). He would accept no reward and did not disclose his name. To this day he is known as the unknown Knight.
