Hayburn Wyke - North York Moors
A hidden cove washed by the North Sea and backed by dense woodland through which tumble attractive streams. The word 'Wyke' is said to have a Scandinavian connection and denotes a narrow coastal inlet or bay. This is certainly the case along the Yorkshire coast where Hayburn Wyke; Cloughton Wyke and Blea Wyke all conform to that pattern. A steep sided wooded valley carries a clear stream to an attractive waterfall which plunges over a sandstone outcrop onto the shore.
