as illustrated below!

You start the walk from near the road bridge and go up the track by the old mill.

 

Walking up the heavily wooded Mulgrave Estate.

The old medieval Mulgrave Castle was constructed in 1214, which was converted into a hunting lodge in 1600. The Castle was besieged twice in the Civil War and then blown up!

After viewing the 'old' Castle you then head for Lythe Village through a short tunnel, purpose?

 

The weather was steadily deteriorating looking towards Whitby across the bay at Sandsend!

 

Coming down the hill towards Lythe Church.

 

St Oswald's Church, Lythe which is the result of an almost total rebuild by Sir Thomas Tapper in 1910, but reused much of the surviving medieval stonework. His intention was to reproduce the structure of the church as it was in the 16th century. Anglo-Saxon pieces of masonry were found showing this church has pretty ancient origins.

 

The main interior of the church, the nave and the reconstructed arches of the aisles.

 

A medieval piscina and sedilia survive.

 

A finely carved oak rood screen

 

The 1910 south door carved in 'Gothic' style.

 

The Stiddy pub is in the village of Lythe with its rebuilt 'medieval' church and the nearby ruins of the medieval Mulgrave Castle. Lythe is situated above the wild North Sea Coast near the alum mining waste tips and the now disused Saltburn-Whitby railway.

 

Back in stormy Sandsend for some welcome refreshment.
