Newton-on-Rawcliffe; Another pretty quiet village, this time a 17th century long house, which you can see in the photo. Slightly ramshackle inside, needs work, but plenty of space, small sun trapped garden at the back. There is a negative/positive side to this house, the present owners are converting a large barn behind into a house, very friendly we spent almost two hours with them and learnt everything about the village, and then surveyed their acres, can always negotiate land if we want for grazing but the fox eats all the hens round here...
We walked up the village, 3 minutes probably onto a track way that goes over the moors, the North Yorkshire Railway runs below in the valley, and over the hill is the Hole of Horcum; the views are spectacular but then this is my favourite road over the moors from the Wheeldale Beck Roman Road, enough said.
