I recently visited The Seated Man. The countryside and views are amazing. I found him using google maps and postcode: YO21 2NW. You can see him in the distance from the roadside and there is plenty of parking at the side of the road. Very scenic walk over the moor on a designated footpath to The Seated Man. He is a very clever sculpture with a rather subdued look on his face - I would be smiling if I have his view! Well worth a visit. Took around 20 minutes from Whitby to get to him and driving over the moors is always great. Watch out for the moorland sheep who run loose.

Went to visit this sculpture and enjoyed the afternoon. Yes it can be a little bit of a walk in some muddy paths, especially if it has been raining the night before but it is worth it. The views are good and it is something different.

We visited the seated man along with Staithes and other places that day, he was brilliant and the views surrounding him beautiful, however it was extremely cold and windy with a ton of mud which had frozen over...

This is a painted bronze statue of a man sitting on a three-legged stool. He's high on the moor, looking into the distance over Westerdale.

He's very well done, and it's an enjoyable stroll to go see him.

He's is a short walk from the road on Castleton Rigg. Park beside the road about a mile or so outside Castleton when driving towards the Red Lion on Blakey Ridge. Then follow the obvious path around the hillside.

The path was pretty muddy when we visited, so choose your footwear accordingly.
