Morning, folks! ‘Ow do? I’m totally fed up with the dreariness of Winter now so here’s a tree in full Autumnal splendour near York Minster. And I do believe we’re now in Lent, so that means it’s nearly Spring. Hurrah!
INT. BLACK HORSE YARD “Many of the yards in this seaside town have hardly changed since the Middle Ages, and these little hidden places – tucked away on both sides of the town – are where one can still meet old Whitby, secret Whitby, unspoilt and untroubled by modern times and the hordes of holidaymakers.” - Gazette & Herald (19/12/2012)
📍Yew Cogar Scar, Yorkshire Dales
The ‘part time’ waterfall on Yew Cogar Scar @mj_piccys calls it Cowside Foss as it falls into Cowside Beck.
This was shot after the storm on Sunday and it is certainly in fine flow! Shows just how much rain there actually was!
A wonderful video clip by @mj_piccys 😍
Crookes Cemetery Chapel was constructed in 1908 and overlooks the Rivelin Valley. The Gothic Revival Style chapel was designed by C. M. Hadfield, with the foundation stone being laid by Lord Mayor Alderman Harry P. Marsh. The land was purchased for around £8,000 and consists of 23 acres.
Winter was long that year. The curtains were opened each morning with a fresh layer of snow. Flowers were confused, as were the hibernating animals. I sat inside, staring out of the window, willing for spring to appear. One quiet morning it did. It arrived in the form of a small bird, tweeting. Soon more birds came and with their song, the sun rose. The cold, dark days were over.
Hills, moorland and reservoirs. Yorkshire really is beautiful. 🌱 •
Lately, I’ve been busy working on articles for @venturingbeneath - if any of you are interested in skincare or travel, I would love to know your thoughts! There’s still a lot of content to go live, but it’ll take a while for me to put it all up. 🗺 •
Would you like to live here? I declare Hutton-le-Hole to be the most picturesque village in Britain! The village green, with Hutton beck winding through it, is absolutely out of this world! At the same time, you won't believe it, but this very village was recorded in Doomsday book in 1086, with 8 lucky families living here back then. The famous Ryedale folk museum is closed right now, but I was really happy to have this wonderful place to myself yesterday,as there were hardly any visitors about. Note to self: visit this really early morning in June. I imagine it can get very crowded.
