Great Fryup Head

A vague plan hatched.
Mooch up to the head of the dale through Canon Atkinson’s undercliff.
End up at Yew Grain, the waterfall on the left.
But The Hills proved far too interesting so this is as far as we got.
The waterfall on the right is Spa Dike.
Arising out of George Gap Spa, a spring containing mineral salts of iron,
hence the red deposits on the rocks.
Its chalybeate waters are said to be good for your health.
George Gap, of course, is better associated with the causeway,
a medieval trod connecting Fryup with Rosedale
that winds its way up the steep cliff just off right out of shot.
Also known as Roman Causey,
although there is no evidence any Roman passed this way.
