Grisedale Pike and Grey Friar

Two of my favourites this week - the shapely Grisedale Pike and the great bulk of Grey Friar in the Duddon Valley.

North York Moors

This month at Storm-crow we look at the North York Moors, one of the quieter of Britain's National Parks, but an area with vast areas of heather moorland and a stunning coast with attractive villages.

Guisborough Priory

Guisborough Priory was an Augustine priory that was founded by Robert de Brus, 1st Lord of Annandale, an ancestor of Robert the Bruce, king of Scotland, and was one of the wealthiest abbeys in Yorkshire.

Gibson Knott and Glaramara

Next we look at Gibson Knott, on the ridge that ends at Helm Crag and Glaramara, a central feature of the Borrowdale scene.
