This Warren Mine walk starts at the T junction north of Hob Hole north-west of Westerdale.

 

Heading west on the track from the T junction to Baysdale and at the old barn you take a right turn (at OS 6324 0780 Garmin) to head over Kildale Moor and down to Warren Mine - a nice bit of industrial archaeology.

 

Looking across Baysdale from the southern slopes of Kildale Moor

 

The chimney of Warren Mine shows up in the distance with Warren Farm above it on the brow of the hill.

 

Once a busy ironstone mine.

 

The Warren Mine chimney is quite a striking feature in the landscape.

 

 

Rather nice brickwork and stonework.

 

Some last traces of the mine buildings survive, in particular the chimney and its fine brickwork. Thank you North York Moors National Parks and Kildale Estates for the care of this piece of industrial archaeology in the wild windswept moors around Warren Farm.

 

After crossing the field by Warren Farm you head out south-west on to Warren Moor - the sheep know the way!

 

Great views across to the 'Cleveland Hills' from Warren Moor in all weathers or seasons of the year!

 

 

Looking across to Easby Moor and you can just make out the tiny point of the Captain Cook Monument and Middlesbrough and Teesside in the distance.

 

Just before you drop down into Baysdale on your right is an old stone wall and an even older medieval boundary - the earth bank (on right) perhaps denoted the limit of a hunting forest?

 

You then head south along road and track until you are looking down to Baysdale Abbey

 

Beautiful spring walking in Baysdale

 

 

Heading down Baysdale on the road to Baysdale Abbey

 

The road to Baysdale Abbey passes over splendid tiny medieval (though restored and strengthened) bridge over Baysdale Beck.

 

Baysdale Abbey - well, what replaced it!

 

Some late bluebells in Baysdale

You then head east and then climb back up to the track which heads back along the track to the T junction above Hob Hole
