How to find us

*Take the A169 from Pickering to Whitby.  Just before the village of Sleights you will see a sign for Blue Bank and approximately 200 yards down Blue Bank turn off to your right, signposted Littlebeck*

Continue to the bottom of the steep, windy hill, go past the house on your right (Nestling House) and as you start to climb past Nestling House there is a turning to your left (signposted Alum House and a No Through Road sign).  Take this turning left and continue down the hill to the ford.

Proceed across the ford and then take the lane to the left and follow it for approximately 300 yards.  You will then come to a curved ford - proceed round this ford and through a gateway marked private road.

Proceed up this track and Throstle Nest is at the top.

Please note that in normal weather conditions there is no water covering the concrete fords.


*If you are travelling from the north or from Whitby take the A169 towards Sleights and Pickering.  Drive right through Sleights, past The Plough Inn on your right-hand side and on driving up Blue Bank take the turning on the left, sighposted Littlebeck.  Continue as above.*
