Hambleton Street

Ancient Trackway


In his 1771 book "Rural Economy of Yorkshire" Arthur Young describes Hambleton Street.

"You are obliged to cross the moors they call Black Hambleton, over which the road runs in narrow hollows that admit a south country chaise (Cart) with some difficulty, that I reckon this part of the journey made a hazard of my neck. The going down into Cleveland is beyond all description, terrible, you go through such steep, rough, narrow, rock precipices, that I would sincerely advise you to go a hundred miles to escape it".
