Village

Details

In Low Hawsker there is a rare Anglo-Saxon stone cross, from the 10th century. Most of the interlaced carving has survived the weathering of past centuries. South-east of the village is a roadside drinking well known as Boiling Well or Abbey Well. The disused Scarborough to Whitby railway line passes through Hawsker. The views from it are stunning, with panoramic vistas of the Heritage Coast. It's more or less flat and there's no traffic so it's an ideal route for walkers, horseriders and cyclists. Facilities include camping and caravan sites, a hotel, a public house, a church, a cafe/tea shop, a public telephone box, a picnic area, a bed and breakfast and there is a regular bus service.
