Ruswarp Village on the River Esk

The River Esk at Ruswarp is a safe place to go boating above the weir-dam and is only a few miles walking from the centre of Whitby.

 

All the rowing boats lined up for the customers at Ruswarp Carrs.

 

A good place to feed the ducks and have a picnic.

Sleights

Sleights is a large village nestling in lower Eskdale that runs down to the River Esk and is just a few miles from Whitby at the end of the Esk Valley.

 

The main road is lined with older stone cottages, a few shops and newer houses.

 

Sleights Station is on the Whitby - Middlesbrough line and even the odd steam train from Whitby to Grosmont passes by just above the River Esk as well as the diesel multiple unit trains.

 

There is a popular large garden centre ...

 

...  and riverside cafe to enjoy.

 

The Salmon Leap pub by the river, and the Eskdale Fisheries fish and chips up in the village, are popular places to eat too.
