The Yorkshire Dales

About this time last year, I began planning my spring ‘22 travels. Yorkshire was high on the list of places to explore in England, and I planned accordingly.

Then, this last winter, I became aware of the newest tv version of James Herriot’s “All Creatures Great and Small”. I love this show, and that enhanced my interest in the area.

I’m grateful that, thanks to Melanie, I enjoyed my first exposure to the achingly beautiful countryside of Yorkshire. Here’s one glimpse, from the roadside between Burnsall and Hebden. Yes, we were enroute to Grassington! For those less familiar with @allcreaturestv, Grassington is a picturesque North Yorkshire market town that’s used in the current tv series as a stand-in for Darrowby.

Have a look at the stone walls you see here. Some of these Yorkshire walls date back to the 13th century, and it’s said there are more than 5,000 miles of them in the Yorkshire Dales alone.

Now, as I contemplate 2023 travels, a return visit to Yorkshire is high on the list.
