Ruswarp

Ruswarp is a village within the Scarborough borough of North Yorkshire, England. It lies around 1.8mi from Whitby, at the junction of the B1410 and B1416 roads, on the River Esk and the Esk Valley Line, with trains stopping at Ruswarp railway station. Originally called Risewarp meaning 'silted land overgrown with brushwood'. The heritage steam train services from Pickering to Whitby pass through Ruswarp, however they do not stop at the Ruswarp platform. Bus services also connect the town to the surrounding area. The village is served by local shops, including A.P. Jackson Butcher, an award-winning butchers specialising in sausages, local meats and baked goods from the Stonehouse Bakery. There is a pub, the Bridge Inn and a church, the Ruswarp Church of St Bartholomew. Primary education is catered for by a local Church of England primary school.Crossing the River Esk downstream is an impressive viaduct, 120 feet high, which was built (using 5,250,000 bricks) to carry the Scarborough-to-Whitby railway line, which was closed in 1965. The viaduct is now owned by Sustrans and carries "The Cinder Track" (a walk/cycleway along the former Whitby-to-Scarborough railway line).There is a pleasant and physically undemanding walk between Ruswarp and Whitby (approximately 1½ miles) mostly along a stone pannierway, known as Monks Trod. The walk is signposted from the main street in Ruswarp. Follow the Esk Valley Walk signs to Whitby.
