Site of Huntcliff Roman Signal Station
Site of Huntcliff Roman Signal Station
Thought to date from the late 4th century AD. It was discovered in about 1862 and excavated in 1911-12. A circular well nearly 14ft deep contained the remains of 14 adults and children, thought to have died during a raid on the site. Most of the site has now been lost to coastal erosion.
It is now located along the Cleveland Way and England Coast Path, on cliffs 100 metres (328 feet) above sea level.

King Charles III England Coast Path (ECP)

The King Charles III England Coast Path (ECP) will take advantage of new public rights of access to the coast, to form a 2,800 mile long public path right around England's coasts.

Parts of the path were already open in 2016, and it was intended at that time that the whole path would be completed by 2020. At that time, the path was called the England Coast Path. It was renamed King Charles III England Coast Path in 2023, in honour of the King's coronation.
