On Gisborough Moor

With a rather dull view across the patchwork moors of Codhill Heights and Great Ayton Moor to Capt. Cook’s Monument.

Or 1,063 feet as our esteemed Prime Minister would have it.

Or maybe he prefers cubits — a cubit being the distance between the elbow and the tip of the middle finger — whatever that works out at.

Perhaps he’s even planning to get the Ordnance Survey to revert back to their One-inch to the mile mapping — at a scale of 1:63,360. Just don’t tell him the OS had actually gone metric in the 1930s.
