Explore Clay Bank Car Park
(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

The site is situated about halfway up the slopes of the Cleveland Hills with the fells rising out of the forest to the south and a panorama of Kildale, Roseberry Topping and Teesside stretching away to the North.

What do other visitors say?

Is the car park always open. I.e. Accessible 24 hours a day.

Yes this car park is always open.

Doing the Cleveland Way in late August and have to call for a pickup at the car park. Is there a public phone booth there? Not having a call phone (out of country).....wonder what my options are.

Thanks for the comment Cathy. Unfortunately there is not a phone box in this location.
