Visit Grosmont

The village of Grosmont is situated in the Esk Valley to the north-east of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, south-west of Whitby.

A village with an important industrial heritage, and in a traditional Yorkshire landscape setting surrounded by farmland, Grosmont was once an important local centre for iron, brick and lime making and various buildings can still be seen from this industrial past.

Grosmont is now better known as being a stop on the very popular steam railway that operates between Pickering and Grosmont - the North Yorkshire Moors railway, and a centre for the preservation of historical steam trains.

Grosmont has a few facilities including a pub, a gift shop and an art gallery with some interesting paintings by local artists.

Grosmont walks

There is a pleasant walk that follows the disused railway track of George Stephenson's original rail line for a couple of miles out of Grosmont - called the Rail Trail.

Another option, slightly longer, is called the Grosmont Industrial Past walk, and follows scenic countryside past various relics form the industrial heyday of the village.

You can find more local travel ideas in the Yorkshire Moors guide and the North Yorkshire guide.
