What great news, well done all groups and volunteers, at last official recognition of a much used quick short cut, twix Ruswarp and Whitby marina.
A safe path we have been using for sixty odd years in (between train times), it is in a spectacular setting, unexpectedly quiet, well away from all noisy traffic where you can view the seals, cormorants, swans, etc in peace.
To make full use of the facilities why not introduce a park and walk scheme using suitable unused fields in the area, bringing much needed finance to local farmers, pub, shops and businesses.
In future a shuttle rail car could ply the same route for those unable or unwilling to walk.
