Faceby is in a dramatic position at the north western corner of the moors. Carlton Moor looms above the village, just about a mile and a half and one thousand feet of climb to the east. Faceby would be a very good base for walking around this dramatic part of the Cleveland Hills.The church of St. Mary Magdalene was built in 1875 and is on the western side of the village.
Very limited parking.
The most obvious target for a walk from Faceby is Carlton Moor, which can best be climbed by following the Cleveland Way, which dips down to valley level to cross Scugdale, just over a mile from the village. For those who prefer less strenous walks, a good network of paths and quiet roads provide many walks with spectacular views of the escarpment.
