Filey Brigg - Out & About
Filey Brigg is a
promontory, jutting out 1600 metres into the sea. Below the cliffs,
the promontory continues as a blade of rock, barely above the
waves. At low tide, this rocky point is a haven for fishermen,
naturalists and fossil hunters.
The Spittal is an enigmatic rock structure running out from the
Brigg, which may be the remains of an ancient harbour, perhaps
serving the Roman signal station which used to be on the cliffs
A marker on the cliffs above Filey Brigg marks the southern end
of the Cleveland Way long-distance walk.
