The Scarborough to Whitby Railway Line saw its last train journey in 1965. The line is now a permissive right of way, allowing walkers, cyclists and horse riders to use it.

The line is one of the most scenic in the Scarborough Borough and provides a valuable amenity passing through beautiful and varied areas such as Hayburn Wyke, Ravenscar and Robin Hood’s Bay.
