Use the new road from the hotel gates through the golf course, but be warned it is smooth but steep for a manual wheelchair user.

Well worth a visit to the old workings, with info boards describing how the Alum Works operated.
Disabled toilet ( Radar ) in the toilet block on the road near to the Visitor Centre.
Seek out the cafe, by the old train station in Ravenscar. Well worth a visit.
