No heather of course at this time of year, but our walk last week on the North Yorkshire moors was still wonderful.
On our way to Skelton Tower on the Leversham estate. Skelton Tower was owned by the Reverend Skelton and was probably a hunting tower. I have always felt it would make a super setting for a gothic novel or mystery story.
And the views are just lovely.
In August this view would be of purple heather, there would be a smell of honey and the drone of bees.
Looking over Newtondale in the other direction is the railway line for the steam trains of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Silent over the winter months whilst maintenance is carried out.
The moors then- beautiful in all seasons.
I hope to get out again this week, but where I wonder, and when . The weather does not sound to be good this week with another storm on the horizon, and by golly it is very chilly.
