Church Way, Ainthorpe Rigg

I often find I visit a stretch of moor that I haven’t been to for years then, a short time later, I’m back on that very same moor. So it was today, I found myself back on Ainthorpe Rigg, and on the Old Hell Road, the old corpse road. This would have been the final journey over the moor for Fryup Dale residents to St Hilda’s church in Danby Dale (centre of photo). Named on modern maps as Church Way, it is marked on the ground by a series of standing stones. This is the last one before the track descends steeply into Danby Dale.
