The Cleveland Way is one of Britain’s oldest long distance walks. The 100 mile route starts in Helmsley skirting the western edge of the North York Moors National Park. On reaching the coastal town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea, at its northern extremity, the path turns south-east and then goes down the coastal section of the National Park, finishing up at Filey.
We’ll Have a Laugh is the amusing and well written story of seven Leicestershire lads who took it upon themselves to walk the Cleveland Way during the Easter holidays in 1974. Follow the humorous and sometimes challenging experiences of the intrepid explorers as they hike along the route and find yourself immersed in nostalgia with well-known songs from the ‘glam rock’ era which intersperse the book. After reading this book you too will be tempted and inspired to follow in the lads’ footsteps and walk this totally unique route which combines moor and coast so successfully.
