Description
  • From the car park walk along Belvedere Road towards Bridlington town centre, and turn left at the end.
  • Walk along Kingston Road to the A165 Kingsgate and turn right.
  • Turn left alongside the school, and at the end of the road follow a footpath to a footbridge over the railway.
  • Once over the bridge take the path to the right, then left, into the Bessingby Industrial Estate.
  • Cross the road and walk between the units, cross a second road and continue straight across, between more units to a track behind them. 
  • Turn left along the track - a public footpath - and enter the more rural area leading to Bessingby.
  • At the end of the track continue straight on along the street into Bessingby village.  Walk along Main Street, passing the church.
  • At the end of the street turn left at a public footpath heading southward around the field edges.
  • Continue, taking care at the railway level crossing to reach the A165 road.  Be careful again and cross the road to enter the access road to the caravan sites.
  • Follow the bridleway signs southward, and then turn left to the sea shore.
  • Now it's a simple matter of walking along the san or the shore footpath to return to the start.

Further Information
Features of Interest
St Magnus Church, Bessingby was rebuilt in 1766 when, according to Bulmer's History and Directory of East Yorkshire (1892) "architectural taste in this country had sunk to its lowest ebb, and the churches that were erected were but unworthy successors of the grand old edifices which they displaced". The church contains several monuments to the Hudson family, lords of the manor at Bessingby Hall during the 19th century.
Accessibility Information
This route has a footbridge over the railway. 
 
Take care to check tide times before starting a walk along the beach (there is a path along the 'cliff top'). 
 
Walking on sand can be difficult for people with mobility problems.
Additional Information
This walk may be started from the roadside parking on Belvedere Road, as the South Shore car park is normally closed during the winter.
