High Lane, Grassington
Drystone wall on High Lane,Grassington

In this picture you see typical elements of Yorkshire scenery: a drystone walled lane, an old stone barn, pastures for cattle and sheep, in the distance the hills of Malham Moor, a stone quarry (Threshfield), and even some May blossom. Before the turnpike (now the B6265) was built linking Grassington and Pateley Bridge in the 18th century, High Lane was the start of the main route between the two towns. Where the track arrives in Hebden, the next village, there is an ancient milestone giving the distance (now illegible) to "Grissington" [sic] and Pateley Bridge. The track is much older than the walls (probably late 18th century) which now line it for part of the way.
