It is not my intention to provide detailed routes for walking, but to convey to the potential visitor, whether touring motorist, or a serious fell walker, the wonderful holiday country of the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines, with occasional snippets of East Cumbria.
 All the digital photographs are taken 'off the cuff' on the many walks and places we visit from which we derive considerable pleasure.
We normally stay in youth hostels but there numerous friendly and hospitable bed and breakfast places or holiday cottages to rent.
The site is dedicated to the friendship of Phil and Molly Brown, Pam Shepherd and Ian McCulley, Dave and Cath Wright and Peter and Anni Hicks, and may our boots wear out together for as long as possible.
Annie, sadly, is no longer with us, but she loved the Dales as much as any of us.

Cafe Mozart is just one of enumerable good cafes in Vienna, the Capital City of Austria. The cafe is very popular with tourists and is nicely situated in the centre of Vienna in Albertina Platz not far from the Cathedral, art gallery and Opera House and other major tourist attractions. It is also a dropping off point for coach trips including Austria, and its capital city Vienna, in their holiday tours. The any number of cafes for cakes!, bars and restaurants in Vienna city centre, all filled with many tasty refreshments

The 'modern art' Hundertwasser Village in Vienna is rather an interesting place to take refreshment but frankly rather touristy which seems to undermine its original 'social' intentions'!

As well as the wild moorland walking country of the North Yorkshire Moors, there lots of lovely towns and villages in Ryedale and the Yorkshire Wolds to visit, many having particular attractions for tourists-visitors. There is no shortage of accommodation from bed and breakfast, holiday cottages, hostels and hotels etc. Three such interesting villages are described by a few token photographs which I hope will encourage and enthuse you to visit them. I feel lucky to live in this are of outstanding natural beauty and can go out walking/motoring with a digital camera to happily explore and record in images-pictures what I see, but all is best scene 'live'!
* Lastingham, Hutton-le-Hole, Appleton-le-Moors and nearby Rosedale in the North York Moors National park, are both lovely attractive villages and therefore significant tourist attractions but there are many lovely quiet walks in the surrounding countryside and villages to explore for the visitor to the North Yorkshire region to enjoy. *

NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE & GATESHEAD
There is a nice cafe, with an appropriate artistic atmosphere of paintings and sculpture, in the Laing Art Gallery in Higham Place in the centre of the great City of Newcastle. This a nice gallery and a really interesting exhibition of the City of Newcastle. There are many 18th and 19th century paintings by local artists.



The 'John Lewis Cafe' in the John Lewis store serves good food and a good refuge from tramping round shops! It is situated in the large Eldon Square Shopping Centre and apparently has good 'baby facilities'!



There is a good bar and bistro in recently magnificently refurbished Theatre Royal in Grey Street were we saw a wonderful performance of the comic production "The Thirty Nine Steps". The Theatre Royal is a grade 1 listed building in Grey Street, with the huge column dedicated to Earl Grey at the top of Grey Street.

Hadrian's Wall
Newcastle-upon-Tyne is a historic busy, bustling and interesting University city to visit or work in and there seems to be ample jobs available. Plenty of places to stay, so accommodation is no problem with lots of hotels. There museums (Hancock Museum, Newcastle Museum of Antiquities, Shefton Museum of Greek Art and Archaeology, Great North Museum to open in 2009, Centre for Life-Discovery Museum), art galleries (Hatton Gallery, Laing Art Gallery, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art), heritage centres, churches and theatres (Newcastle Theatre Royal, Live Theatre, Tyne Theatre, Peoples Theatre, Newcastle Arts Centre) to visit and it seems to have become a favourite venue for trips to night clubs and discos, though a wild nightclub was never my scene! The Baltic Arts Centre, Millennium Bridge, the giant arches of the Tyne Bridge and there is plenty of live music e.g. at the Sage Theatre and Concert Hall above the Gateshead Quays, which provide a wonderful backdrop to walking by the River Tyne. Newcastle can be readily reached by road, rail, flights and coach. There are many interesting historic sites to see not too far to travel to, particularly the Roman sites like Vindolanda and Housteads Forts and Hadrian's Wall. The Geordies (as the 'Toon' army) passionately support their Newcastle Football Club despite the ups and downs of recent years! I hope the site provides a series of pictures and images that make you want to visit the City of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. More details and links to follow. There are lots of bed and breakfast to stay at, with hostels and self-catering holiday cottages in the surrounding countryside of Northumbria and the Northumberland National Park, the Border Forest Park and Kielder Forrest water, walking and other outdoor facilities on offer. For those can afford it, lots of properties for sale or rent, but property prices for 1st or second homes are rising as everywhere else, particularly in attractive villages. South of Newcastle is the lovely city of Durham and its great Cathedral but watch out for out of the way treasures like the Saxon church at Escomb and other Roman sites like Corbridge. North of Newcastle is the wild coast of Northumbria. West is Hadrian's Wall.

12 Whitby to Grosmont (using Network Rail track)
13 Grosmont to Goathland Station
14-16 Goathland to Newtondale to Levisham to Pickering (return trip)

Note
Grosmont is at the hub of the NYMR operations with its station platform interchange with Network Rail, the locomotive depot, restoration and maintenance workshops and carriage sheds.
Goathland and Levisham are the two 'crossing' places on this mainly single track railway, so two trains are usually co-reside for a few minutes.
Newtondale Halt is a request stop station, so if on the platform, put your hand out as if its a bus! and if on the train PLEASE tell the guard you want to get off and also make sure you are in the correct carriage - the trains are quite long and Newtondale Halt has a relatively short platform!
Goathland is the setting for TV's 'Aidensfield' the village in the very popular ITV series called 'Heartbeat'
Pickering is a very pleasant friendly town with the Beck Isle Museum, medieval Pickering Castle and the Church of St Peter and St Paul (medieval wall paintings) which are all worth a visit.
Whitby Town is a popular tourist destination whether the visitors come to stay or day-trippers. With its shops, places to eat, beaches, harbour of boats and yachts, historic buildings like St Mary's Church and Whitby Abbey and coastal walks, it has much to offer the visitor.

As well as the wild moorland walking country of the North York Moors, the District of Ryedale and the Yorkshire Wolds to the south-east of Pickering, there lots of lovely towns and villages to visit in these areas, many having particular attractions for tourists-visitors. There is no shortage of accommodation from bed and breakfast, holiday cottages, hostels and hotels etc. Three such interesting villages are described by a few token photographs which I hope will encourage and enthuse you to visit them. I feel lucky to live in this are of outstanding natural beauty and can go out walking/motoring with a digital camera to happily explore and record in images-pictures what I see, but all is best scene 'live'.

* Scotland is traversed by some of the most scenic railway lines any tourist can undertake in the UK or even Europe? * Why more people, 'the tourists' on holiday, do not forsake their cars and take to the 'train line' for a day I can't explain. But, I hope these humble photographs, mostly taken through the railway carriage window, will inspire more people to make the trip on Scottish trains up through the lowlands and on to the beautiful Highlands regions and districts of Scotland. *

Travelling by steam train always seems a pleasure, especially if through wonderful scenery either in England, Scotland, Wales or on holiday in the rest of Europe! Railway trips involving seeing or travelling behind a 'real' steam locomotive in action is something special and there is nothing like the sight and sounds of a steam train to invoke feelings of nostalgia in some of us! * There are many steam heritage railway lines including dining car facilities so you can eat a great meal as scenery passes by so see also below for other railway 'connections'!

They are based on five walks from the North York Moors National Park Visitor Centre at Sutton Bank where you can purchase a copy of a booklet describing these five walks in detail with maps, but an "OS Explorer Map OL 26 North York Moors - Western Area" is a great geographical and navigational help if necessary. * Enjoy the walking in the countryside this lovely and interesting area of Northern England where there are lots of places to visit, varied walking holiday landscapes and no shortage of accommodation with warm and friendly hospitality.

The Cafe-tearoom in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park Centre at Sutton Bank, England. Freshly baked food, generous pots of tea and lots of great walking on the ridge and above and below the White Horse of Kilburn and the gliders are towed into the air from Sutton Bank airfield. You can walk along the escarpment at the top of the cliffs by the aerodrome watching the taking off and landing of the light aircraft and gliders.


At the Sutton Bank National Park Visitor Centre there is an excellent bird watching facility with a colourful guide to the birds you can see on the bird feeders set up outside the viewing window.

Apart from the bird watching, the good food and drinks at the cafe, there are two exhibitions (May 2012). The first is a photographic exhibition called 'Diamonds in the Landscape' to celebrate 60 years of the National Parks.
The other exhibition is called 'Lime & Ice' with an audio-visual display explaining how the landscape around Sutton Bank has evolved over the past 200 million years.

Sometimes archaeological sites are well and truly on the tourist trail and others you need to search in the small print. Either way, we always find it a pleasure wherever we are to visit an interesting archaeological site wherever we are on holiday, even if sites suffer from over indulgent tourism. Ancient prehistoric sites always hold a fascination as the tantalising archaeology and history of places always poses more questions that it answers!

The famous English seaside towns of Whitby and Scarborough in North Yorkshire, and its association with the explorer Captain Cook is close to the North York Moors of Northern England which are a beautiful and relatively unspoilt area of England and a great place for a relaxing holiday. It is becoming quite a place for boating, yachting and sea-fishing, since very few trawlers can make a living these days. On the coast is Sandsend beach, Staithes harbour (a favourite for artists), fossil hunting at Ravenscar on the Jurassic dinosaur cliffs and the coastal picturesque villages of Runswick Bay and Robin Hoods Bay, both of which are perched on the cliffs of the Cleveland Way. Whitby has its 'Dracula' week, Folk Music Festival and a replica of Captain Cook's ship, the Endeavour. Not far away is the village of Goathland which is famous for the North Yorkshire Moors steam railway and Yorkshire TV's 1960's based series "Heartbeat". There are lots of self-catering holiday cottages for renting-letting, bed and breakfast places, chalets, lodges for rent-lets, farmhouses and hotels to stay in. BUT most of the area is relatively unspoilt, where you can do lots of lovely walking and other outdoor interests in moorland and dales etc. For those can afford it, lots of properties for sale or rent, but property prices for first or second homes are rising as everywhere else, particularly in attractive villages. I hope the site provides a series of pictures and images that make you want to visit Whitby.

In the Yorkshire Wolds in the East Riding and North Sea coast of South Yorkshire, there lots of lovely towns and villages to visit in these areas, many having particular attractions for tourists-visitors. There is no shortage of accommodation from bed and breakfast, holiday cottages, hostels and hotels etc. There are many interesting villages with their ancient churches and old buildings which I hope will encourage and enthuse you to visit them. I feel lucky to live near the Yorkshire Wolds, an area of rolling limestone hills of great outstanding natural beauty and can go out walking/motoring with a digital camera to happily explore and record in images-pictures what I see, but all is best scene 'live' and visit the many tourist attractions for yourself.

A Brief History of York
IN PREPARATION
A BRIEF HISTORY of the City of YORK
INTRODUCTION, then various periods of York's history are discussed
York is a great historic walled city where the Rivers Ouse and Foss meet in North Yorkshire, England. York is the traditional county town of Yorkshire to which it gives its name. York has a rich historic and cultural heritage and witnessed major political events in England over the two millennia of its existence. Despite its relatively small size for a city, York has a wealth of historic attractions, the most prominent being the great medieval building of York Minster.
The word York (from Old Danish Jórvík from the 9th century AD) is derived from the Latinised name for the city, variously rendered as Eboracum, Eburacum or Eburaci. The first mention of York by this name comes from around 95–104 AD as an address on a wooden stylus tablet from the Roman fortress of Vindolanda in Northumberland.
The City of York lies in the Vale of York, a flat area of fertile arable land bordered by the Pennines to the west, the North York Moors to the northeast and the Yorkshire Wolds to the southeast. York was a tidal port until the lock was built at Naburn on the River Ouse south of York. Up to the end of the 20th century, the Ouse was used by barges to carry freight between York and the port of Hull.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Roman Period
Prior to the Roman conquest of Britain, the York area was occupied by a tribe known to the Romans as the Brigantes. The Brigantian tribal area was initially a subservient Roman state, but, later its leaders became hostile and the famous ('lost') Roman Ninth Legion was sent north of the Humber into Brigantian territory to quell any uprising and preserve the Roman administrative centre of York which had been founded by the Romans as Eboracum in 71 AD and later became the capital of the Roman province of Britannia Inferior. Initially a wooden military fortress was built on flat ground above the River Ouse close to its confluence with the River Foss, it was later rebuilt in stone and the site of the Roman fortress lies under the foundations of York Minster, and excavations in the undercroft have revealed some of the original walls. One particularly notable point of the Roman occupation of York was that the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great was proclaimed Emperor at York in AD 306. York declined in the post-Roman era i.e. after ~AD400, and was taken and settled by the Angles in the 5th century AD.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pre-1066 Norman Conquest - Anglo-Saxon & Viking era
In this period York was the capital of the kingdoms of Northumbria and Jorvik. Reclamation of the flooded land between the Rivers Ouse and Foss began in the7th century under King Edwin of Northumbria, and York which became his chief city. The first minster church was built in York for the baptism of Edwin in 627. Under Oswald, the first stone minster was completed in the following century Alcuin of York came to the cathedral school of York. Here Alcuin had a long career as a teacher and scholar, first at the school at York now known as St Peter's School, founded in 627 AD, and also as Charlemagne's leading advisor on ecclesiastical and educational affairs.
In 866 the Vikings raided and captured York and under their rule the city became a major river port, part of the extensive Viking trading routes throughout northern Europe. The last ruler of an independent Jórvík, Eric Bloodaxe, was driven from the city in AD 954 by King Edred in his successful attempt to complete the unification of England.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The post-Norman Conquest Period - The Norman and Medieval Period eras
In the Middle Ages, York became a major wool trading centre and became the capital of the northern ecclesiastical province of the Church of England, a role it has retained. In 1068, two years after the Norman Conquest of England, the people of York rebelled with some initial success but with the arrival of William the Conqueror the rebellion was put down who built two wooden fortresses on mottes, which are visible, on either side of the river Ouse. York was ravaged by William's army in the dreadfully destructive infamous 'harrying of the North'.

The first stone York minster was badly damaged by fire in the uprising and the Normans built a new minster and around the year 1080 Archbishop Thomas started building the cathedral which eventually becomes the current Minster. As an important port and administrative centre for the north (e.g. Northumbria) during the 12th century York started to prosper and grow. It was also in this period in 1190, York Castle was the site of an infamous massacre of its Jewish inhabitants, in which at least 150 Jews died.

King John granted the city's first charter in 1212, confirming trading rights for York in England and Europe. In medieval times York merchants imported wine from France, cloth, wax, canvas, and oats from the Low Countries, timber and furs from the Baltic and exported grain and wool to Gascony and the Low Countries by which time York had become a major cloth manufacturing and trading centre. Edward I indirectly aided the city's economy by using the city as a base for his war in Scotland.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
16th to 18th Centuries - The Tudor & Georgian Periods
York experienced a period of economic decline during Tudor times, particularly under Henry VIII, when the Dissolution of the Monasteries saw the end of the York's many 'rich' monastic houses, including orders of friars, the hospitals of St Nicholas and of St Leonard, the largest such institution in the north of England. This 'dissolution' of monastic houses led to the Pilgrimage of Grace, an uprising of northern Catholics in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire opposed to the religious reforms instigated by Henry VIII, but, Henry restored his authority by establishing the Council of the North in York in the dissolved St Mary's Abbey (ruins in the Museum Gardens).

In 1605, Guy Fawkes, who was born and educated in York, was a member of a group of Roman Catholic plotters that planned the Gunpowder Plot. Its aim was to displace Protestant rule by blowing up the Houses of Parliament while King James I, the entire Protestant, and even most of the Catholic aristocracy and nobility were inside. However they were betrayed, captured, found guilty of treason and executed.

In 1644, during the Civil War, the Parliamentarians besieged York but the arrival of Prince Rupert, with an army of 15,000 men, ensured the siege was lifted. The Parliamentarian army retreated some 6 miles (10 km) from York with Prince Rupert in pursuit, before turning on his army and soundly defeating it at the Battle of Marston Moor. The siege of York was then renewed but York could not hold out for long, and eventually surrendered to Sir Thomas Fairfax.

Following the restoration of the monarchy under Charles II in 1660, the garrison was removed from York in 1688 and the city was once again dominated by the rising middle class gentry and merchants, but strong commercial competition from Leeds and Hull and the silting up of the River Ouse, resulted in York losing its pre-eminent position as a trading centre and port but the York's role as a social and cultural centre for wealthy northerners was on the rise.
York's many elegant Georgian townhouses, such as the Lord Mayor's Mansion House and Fairfax House date from this period, as do the Assembly Rooms, the Theatre Royal, and the racecourse. The Guildhall (dating from medieval times, near the river down from St Helens Square) is where members of the City of York Council meet and the Mansion House (A fine Georgian building in St Helens Square) is home to the Lord Mayor of York York's first subscription library opened in 1794.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
19th Century - The Victorian Period
In the 19th century, York became a hub of the new and rapidly expanding railway network and a confectionery manufacturing centre for sweets and chocolate. In 1893 the first free public library, the York Library, was built on Clifford Street to mark Queen Victoria's jubilee, though a new building was erected on Museum Street in 1927 and is still the library today by the medieval ruins of St Leonard's Hospital.
The railway promoter George Hudson was mainly responsible for bringing the railway to York in 1839, but Hudson's career as a railway entrepreneur ended in disgrace and bankruptcy. However, his promotion of his own railway company, the York and North Midland Railway and of York over Leeds, helped establish York to become an major railway centre by the late 19th century.

It was the introduction of the railways that established major railway engineering workshops in the city e.g. starting a long tradition of carriage building. At the turn of the 20th century the headquarters and works of the North Eastern Railway were part of York's economy and the railway was instrumental in the expansion of Rowntree's Cocoa Works. It was founded in 1862 by Henry Isaac Rowntree, who was joined in 1869 by his brother the philanthropist Joseph Rowntree. Another chocolate manufacturer, Terry's of York was another major employer and so by 1900 the railways and confectionery had become the city's two major industries all of which flourished well into the 20th century.

Modern Era - 20th and into the 21st Century and Tourism
York has had to move with the times and the economy once dominated by its confectionery and railway-related industries, is now one of service providers and the University of York and health services have become very important major employers. York's tourism industry goes back to medieval times (e.g. popular place for pilgrims) but this is now a much more important sector of the local economy. The opening of the University of York in 1963 has greatly added to the prosperity of the city with thousands of students contributing to the local economy and provided much needed jobs. York's economy is now very much based on service industries including public sector employment, health, education, finance, information technology (IT) and the all important and growing tourism that has become an important element of York's economy. York is still the headquarters of the confectionery manufacturer Nestlé York (formerly Nestlé Rowntrees) and home to the KitKat and iconic Yorkie bar chocolate brands. Terry's chocolate factory, makers of the Chocolate Orange departed in 2005, when production was moved by its owners, Kraft Foods, to Poland, but the historic factory building is situated next to the Knavesmire racecourse.
York has a huge range of historic attractions, of which York Minster is the most prominent, and a variety of cultural activities. The historic core of York has became one of the city's major assets for the tourism industry, and in 1968 it was designated a conservation area. Some of the most recent attractions are the National Railway Museum in York and the Jorvik Viking Centre. The central part of York is surrounded by the city's medieval walls, which form a great historic and popular walk and these defences are the most complete in England, dating from Roman times through Norman times, the Middle Ages, the 17th century Civil War and Victorian reconstructions.

A less obvious tourist and useful feature of central York is the Snickelways, which are narrow pedestrian routes, many of which led towards the former market-places in Pavement and St Sampson's Square. There is also the Shambles, a narrow medieval street, where the upper stories of the houses overhang and almost touch each other. Now York's Shambles are lined with shops, boutiques and tea rooms whose premises were once butchers' shops, and the hooks from which carcasses were hung and the shelves on which meat was laid out can still be seen outside some of them. The Shambles also contains the Shrine of the Catholic martyr Margaret Clitherow. Goodramgate has many medieval houses, some the earliest left standing in York, including the early 14th century Lady Row built to finance a Chantry by the side of the churchyard of Holy Trinity church, itself well worth a visit to view its medieval stained glass windows (one of several really interesting churches to visit).

As well as the Castle Museum, the city contains numerous other museums and historic buildings such as the Yorkshire Museum and its Museum Gardens, JORVIK Viking Centre, the York Art Gallery, the Richard III Museum at Monk Bar, the Merchant Adventurers' Hall (a wonderful medieval timber framed building), the reconstructed medieval house Barley Hall (owned by the York Archaeological Trust), the splendid 18th century Fairfax House, the Mansion House (the historic home of the Lord Mayor), and the Treasurer's House (once of medieval origin and now owned by the National Trust). The National Railway Museum near York Station has the largest collection of railway locomotives in the world including the world's fastest steam locomotive LNER 4468 Mallard and the world famous 4472 Flying Scotsman,

York has some prestigious sporting connections and venues. York Racecourse was established in 1731 and from 1990 the famous racecourse has been awarded Northern Racecourse of the Year for 17 years running! In August York horse racing takes place over the four-day Ebor Festival that includes the Ebor Handicap dating from 1843. York has also hosted the UK Snooker Championship, which is the second biggest ranking tournament in snooker, at the York Barbican Centre. In July 2014, York hosted the start of Stage 2 of the 2014 Tour de France.
Apart from the cinema, theatres there are many cultural activities to go to in York e.g. Each September since 1997, York holds an annual Festival of Food and Drink with the aim of highlighting the food culture of York and North Yorkshire by promoting local food production. The famous 'medieval' York Mystery Plays are performed in public at intervals, using texts based on the original medieval plays of this type that were performed by the guilds. The Academy of St Olave's, a chamber orchestra which gives concerts in St Olave's Church, Marygate, is one of the music groups that perform regularly in York. A former church, St Margaret's, Walmgate, is the National Centre for Early Music, which hosts concerts and arranges concerts of medieval, Renaissance and classical period music at other venues and York St John University music department regularly perform lunchtime concerts in the University chapel.

Below is an 'illustrated' list of some cafes, pubs and restaurants to suit all 'tastes' and budgets! I think you will agree there is quite an interesting variety of locations in York when eating and drinking out by the River Ouse or dining out in style in the City!






A good place for vegetarian food is the cafe 'Mannion & Co', 1 Blake Street, York.

One of our favourite budget eating place is in the Spurriergate Centre, York, and applaud its policy of employing people who might otherwise not find it that easy to find work. It was originally the medieval church of St Michael, York, and the fine Norman columns and more recent? stain glass windows provide a most interesting and atmospheric setting for a hearty lunch.


York Public Library in Museum Street has a very nice coffee area with very comfortable chairs, good coffee and great scones and other tasty goodies! It is being refurbished in 2014, hopefully ready for 2015.
