Egton & Grosmont

Grosmont Village and Train Station

A short walk down the lane from Ladycross Plantation and you'll find yourself entering the village of Egton. It's a typical Yorkshire village, with one main street running through the middle. There are two pubs - The Witching Post and the Wheatsheaf. Both serve food.

If you follow the road, you'll begin heading down hill. Passing the village school on your left, you're leaving Egton and entering Egton Bridge. This is where the train station is on the Whitby to Middlesbrough line. There's another pub here - The Postgate.

You could catch the train towards Whitby, or Middlesbrough and enjoy a walk in the countryside or a picnic in one of the other Esk Valley villages.

Visit the Railway

The Esk Valley is home to the North York Moors Steam Railway. The main engine sheds are located in the village of Grosmont, a short distance from Egton.

The railway winds its way from Whitby, through the Esk Valley, leaving the main line at Grosmont and heading inland, terminating at Pickering.

It's a fantastic day out. Whether you go the whole distance, or just a few stops - there's nothing like travelling by steam!
