Whitby and the North York Moors
Spring 2004 Day 3
Day 1, Day 2, Day 4, Day 5
Our walk today started at Grosmont and our destination was Sleights.
We first had a quick look at a few steam trains leaving Grosmont station. We had arrived on a "steam rally weekend", and the village was packed with enthusiasts. Our ride will be tomorrow!
First the matter of a climb out of Grosmont.
Up and up we went to the top the road, and still there was more climbing.
The views improve of course, and ....
... we could see the ruins of Whitby Abbey in the distance.
We headed through a lovely nature reserve in search of the water fall at Littlebeck.
No, this is not Falling Foss. Sadly the photographer did not spot it, so this will have to do!
After lunch we climbed up the hill side, and had good views of the moor we had crossed in the morning.
Crossing the swamp - and on to Sleights, where we car shuttled back to our hotel and a nice shower/bath before dinner.
