Wordless Wednesday……. Another Favourite Place


The North Yorkshire Moors

Just a snapshot of a very small part of the vast North Yorkshire Moors.  Moor that sweep across deep dales, through thick forest and open expanses of  heather glad open moor and then eventually down to the sea.

Here we are just above the small village of Rosedale Abbey.  We see just a small part of the moors of Rosedale, Hamer and Wheeldale.

Whilst there are of course tourist hotspots, for the most part there is just miles of tranquil moor in which to explore and enjoy peace.  The sound of birds for company.

At the moment the moors will be devoid of people….. but they will still be there when these troubled times are eventually over.

Please Remember …. 
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

Silent Sunday……. but not off to church this week.



Rosedale Moor, North Yorkshire

High on the North Yorkshire Moors you can find a great many ancient stone crosses, many going back over countless centuries. But this cross is much more modern.  It is  the War Memorial for the small village and surrounds of Rosedale Abbey that nestles in the valley below.  A memorial that in my view has been erected with past history very much in mind….and a place for contemplation.
