Distance (miles)170
Starting fromLeeds Town Hall

Named because the route the authors devised ran 'roughly parallel to the route taken by the Coastliner bus and we used that bus each day to get back to our parked car'. However, subsequently, 'the Coastliner 845 bus route from Staxton to Filey and Bridlington has been cancelled as from 1st July 2018 ... This means that Walks 21, 22 and 23 of the Coastliner Way can no longer be completed using the Coastliner bus. However, if you do wish to follow these three sections of the trail it will be possible to do so using a two car system by parking one car at the end of the day’s walk'.

Category:South East

'The UK's ancient pathways are a national treasure out there to be explored for their history, archaelogy and wild life. Now having a tad more time for this kind of pursuit, I have been investigating some of them recently - starting with the Icknield Way ... I have split the Way into circular routes each of which takes a bite-sized stretch that can be completed as a comfortable stroll in a leisurely few hours. The standard information available is great for taking you from A to B along the paths but these circular routes will allow you to plan a day's walk which will bring you back to A again by the end of the stroll.' Other Trails include: The Ridgeway; Greensand Ridge Walk; John Bunyan Trail; North Bedfordshire Heritage Trail; Three Shires Way.
