    Now that’s what I call a green lane …

    … but not what most folks usually associate with the term, an off-road route for motorbikes and 4wd vehicles. Actually, the term ‘green lane’ has no legal significance. An unsurfaced route for vehicles would be a ‘byway open to all traffic’ or a BOAT. This is, in fact, a Public Bridleway providing access rights for…

    A horse’s route up Roseberry

    I was perusing the North York Moors Rights of Way map the other day when I noticed that there is a Public Bridleway that zigzags its way from the top of Roseberry Lane almost to the summit. In the photo, the bridleway comes up the flagged path to the bend and then continues to the…

    Jack Sledge Road

    Ever get that feeling of lethargy during the dark winter months. It hit me today. Must have melatonin to spare. And a wee sniffle didn’t help. So a potter around Danby Rigg. This is the Jack Sledge Road as it descends into Little Fryup Dale. It must be an ancient track linking the dale with…

    Public Bridleway through Coalmire Wood

    This annoys me.Ā Intimidating signs erected across a Public Right of Way, clearly shown as such on the O.S. maps and on the North York Moors National Park’s own mapping portal. I took the photo above at point A, and the one below, of a padlocked gate, at point B. Both maps indicate a Public Bridleway…

  • Airy Holme Lane

    Airy Holme Lane

    Finally it snew overnight. No, that’s not a typo, just the archaic past tense of the word snow. Just as knew and know, and grew and grow. I love to resurrect these lost words. The snow has transformed this photo of Airy Holme Lane, the Public Bridleway that runs between Aireyholme Farm and the col…
