The most popular approach is from Clay Bank car park on the B1257 Stokesley to Helmsley road at NZ573035. Follow the road briefly in the direction of Helmsley to the end of the trees where there are stone steps on the right going uphill. At the top of the steps continue up the rough eroded track to level out and skirt beneath Landslip and Ravenscar. Broughton Bank is just before the Wainstones on this approach and it is best to cross the stile beneath Wainstones then head back up the hill side to get to Broughton Bank. Approach time approx 30mins.
There are a number of alternative approaches.
