|This little Methodist Chapel in East Witton is at the start of the walk. The footpath is just to left.|
Crossing the road, I followed the River Cover until it met up with the River Ure.
|Arty shot of the Hawthorne Berries. I tried, but I couldn't make them look as good on camera as they were in the flesh.|
|The sun came out, and the path looked better. No doubt it looks fantastic in the Spring and Summer, full of flowers.|
|I tried so hard to get a picture of this little pond without the sun glare. I failed obviously. The pond itself was a stunning sight. Described as a "Fish Pond Plantation" on the OS Map. (Whatever that means).|
|I continue alongside the River Ure, the path widens and the trees open out. Glorious in the sunshine.|
The right of way comes to a fence and you turn right towards the A6108 and this sign. Looks good dunnit?
I walked along the road for 1/4 mile and found the tea rooms.
Sadly, they were closed. Out of season I think.
But I crossed the road to take a look at Jervaulx Abbey, duly dropping my pennies in the honesty box (They ask for £3 per adult).
|I found a Wamping Willow in the grounds|
|Looking across to the Abbey from Jervaulx Park|
|I am often amazed by how wonderful, large, old and gnarled trees can be. This one is also a brilliant colour.|
|Not quite an inversion, but the vale ahead is filled with cloud. Cool.|
