North Yorkshire Moors Railway : Fabulous!


     Last week we spent the week on vacation enjoying the fabulous scenery of North Yorkshire and the National Park and Moors. I'm old enough to have travelled regularly on steam trains in my youth, and I was delighted when we discovered the North Yorkshire Moors Railway went past the Cottage where we were staying. Not only that, but last weekend was a Steam Gala, and so there were trains going by regularly throughout the day, and the sound of the whistle quickly became a notable part of our lives.
     Levisham Station, which featured in one of the Harry Potter movies and also in 'Brideshead Revisited', was a five-minute walk away, and we spent several hours enjoying the hustle and bustle of a busy 1912-design railway station during the course of the week.

We stayed in a beautiful detached cottage on the edge of the Forest which was aptly named 'The Hideaway'.  Why not check it out for yourself by going to this website.
