Along the B6160 South of Kettlewell - Yorkshire Dales - Anglophile Friday

Keeping the sheep in  - or out

And if they'd thought of a fourth type of fence, they probably would have used that too!

 The Yellow Line

You can ignore the red and blue lines. The post today contains photos taken along the yellow line portion of the trip from Leyburn to Embsay along the B6160. I thought this was an interesting little piece of pastureland in the Yorkshire Dales, south of Kettlewell.





Grassington (see map above)

If you ever have the opportunity to get to Yorkshire, it's definitely worth renting a car and traveling down the B6160 from Leyburn to Skipton (just south of Embsay). It's definitely a road less traveled and it did make all the difference!

HI Judy What a lot of stone walls. Reminds my of Donegal in Ireland.

I am so glad you are back to showing your wonderful photos of Yorkshire and England. I do love them and it reminds me of my one trip there.

Absolutely beautiful!! It must have taken forever to build those old stone walls and forever to maintain. Guess when a kid was bad, instead of sending them out for a switch or sent to bed - they'd send them out to rebuild or repair the stone fences!!

Denise said...

Awesome.

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

John took me to Skipton last trip - definitely a beautiful corner of the world!!!
Been waiting for an Anglophile Friday
John just looked with me :)
Aren't those " dry walls " gorgeous?
( John says that's what they're called - don't know if I trust him on that but he IS from Yorkshire so he may be right lol )
XOXO

I love the moss covered stone wall and the sheep.
Just finished going through some of your posts I've missed. Love all your colorful photos. All those dried fruits and vegetables will really taste good this winter.

Very picturesque. Thanks for sharing these images.

I found the tea bag buddy at the Bed, Bath & Beyond store.

Have a nice weekend.

So delightful to see those scenes. Looks as if it's directly off the set of All Creatures Great and Small.

I love the rock wall fence- wish I could visit this countryside- so pretty!

Susie said...

I love all these pictures !! When I saw that stone fence..all I could think was , that is a lot of rock hauling..years of it, it seems. The mossy rocks look so interesting. I have enjoyed this post. xoxo,Susie

Beautiful pictures! Looks like a wonderful trip. My husband and I are going to Ireland in a couple of weeks for our 25th anniversary and I am hoping for some beautiful countryside there too. Thanks for sharing your pictures!

Beautiful countryside pictures! The stone fences/wall are beautiful; they remind me of Connecticut and Massachusetts,just more. Country folks are country folks no matter where you go...use what you got.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful pics.

I love seeing your photos of the English countryside. We took a trip there in 1999 and loved it.

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

Thanks for quenching my thirst for anything English! It was so nice watching your picture over my morning cup of tea, of course!

You inspire me once again with Yorkshire Dales countryside, it's classic North Yorkshire at its best. Love the composition of the shots that take in the character of everything. Definitely the road less travelled for me ... only once on a return route but not enough time to stop. I've been to Grassington & Kettlewell in the recent past for a walk & a weekend but for timing had to travel from the north & east respectively. The parallel Yorkshire dry stone walls are really something special if you can find good examples ... like you have here.

It looks like a glorious countryside!
