Points of Interest/Notes on this walk:

The area of maritime grassland, south of Flamborough Lighthouse, is rich in summer flowers such as harebell, birds-foot trefoil, creeping Cinquefoil & common dog violet.

Old Fall Plantation is a mature Sycamore woodland and highly important habitat, as there are very few wooded areas on the Flamborough Headland. Both the plantation and the old hedgerow are especially important resting places for migratory birds.
