A Craven Notebook – nailed, the farthest point in England

Ignoring the weather forecast as it rains very hard all day – what do you know? – I set out again in search of the farthest place, that is the longest road in England. And I found it on Rig Moore, 6 miles or more, on a high hill from Constantine.

Being honest, very moral, and very crowded and very little shelter is not much. Walking in the fall As always, Henry Mason, 83, came out of the fog in a raincoat and shorts.

Henry, former chairman of the Craven Ramblers, was on a “short” eight-mile walk from Yarbury near Grantonton. He left his map and compass at home to take mapping courses in Steeton, where he lived, and relied on the newly purchased Ordance Survey app – from my brother’s birthday present.

Henry was absolutely right to look skeptical. It was not just a welcome in England, it was raining and I did not risk damaging my phone. That was back in the winter and I spent a week on my phone to deal with the stress in a bag of rice.

But I can report that the best way to reach the Morland plateau is to take the sidewalk from Konston, cross the DB and join the road to Sandy Gate and Middlesbrough. You’ll get past the Model scars and soon take the pedestrian bridge to the “shooting box” (building) and take the road to Shenter – there and at Riggs Moor.

Back to lovely I returned to the beautiful Koniston, drinking wet, but successfully inspecting my waterproofing, I found a newlywed couple walking slowly through the mud near the river Warfe for a wedding video.

The bridegroom grinned as he grumbled about how it had rained all day as he slipped into the mud on his high heels.

On the subject of walking; My usual night, after work, is about a mile of country road, which is also a cycle route and has recently been revisited. The road from West Martin to Garagrav is a local road, and now, all the pits are full, surprisingly smooth, and, as such, those drivers who had previously been frozen by the fear of their vehicles, were overjoyed. Or nothing. I can’t talk to cyclists, but it certainly makes pedestrian more fun, one has to keep jumping off the fence to get out of cars.

It reminded me of a conversation I had with some high-ranking officer during the days when local officials were talking to local reporters. The best way to slow down traffic is to leave the pits empty; To create a ‘slalom effect’ so that and people can stop where they want on the roads. At the time, I believe, it was in the days before car owners began prosecuting local highways, etc.

The GARGRAVE scene is one of the unfortunate events of this year, as it is a victim of the cholera epidemic.

In a statement posted on its website, Alistair Law, chairman of the organization, said:

“We sincerely apologize to anyone who may want to attend or perform. It is not a simple decision and we are sorry for any inconvenience and inconvenience. ”

We hope he will be back next year. Meanwhile, when they look back on the show 50 years ago, it was “1971”, and it was all heavy rain and storms.

According to the Craven Herald, the show was hit by the weather and with less than half a year before it was shown.

“Extreme winds have hit the airwaves since the 68th anniversary,” says the paper, adding that ‘heavy rains in the morning and strong winds in the afternoon’ will no doubt be responsible for the ‘half-cut’. .

Despite the weather, competition in cattle ranches was high, with inputs higher than ever. Two legal brothers have won six of the eight trophies in the Animal Division – Stephen Thompson, Graph and Kenneth Stapleton. Mr. Thompson bought the Cattle Winner Martin two days before the event.

It was a great result for the Gagarov show, 75 years ago. In August 1946, when the Herald reported on the end of World War II in 1939, the 42nd event was held in August. , 1939 Weeks before the War.

If it had been raining for almost a week, it would have been bright sunshine for the mill. The “Capital Program” and healthy inputs in all sectors have provided a promising future for the event, the Herald said. Veterinary tractors have created a great deal of interest in animal education, including cattle, sheep, and poultry. There were also gardening, horse racing, and field and track events.

Fifty years ago, in the same Craven Herald edition, Mr. Ar Hargevs, then owner of Helfield Field, was reportedly planning to demolish the Reiki Road, Skeptton.

At the time, the tower was just a disaster, and the Reconstruction of Karenes and Francis Shaw made him a star in the great designs of television.

Mr. Hargreaves then applied to the West Ridge County Council for dismissal. It was then that the Herald, without a roof, said it was “broken”, bushes grew out of its leaves, and, worst of all, it “endangered children.”

Public notice was posted in the newspaper to see if there were any objections to its removal. According to the Herald, the tower was set up to protect locals from invading Scots and was believed to have been captured there until World War II.

Mr. Hargevs was on Helfieldfield Pell Estate, which he bought in 1965 for “sports purposes.”

According to the Skipton Area Planning Officer, the wall had to be removed from the list of historical monuments due to its damage, but it was “historically attractive” because it was “one of the last towers in the country”.

Going back to the Craven Herald archives, in August 1929, at the time, Sutton Vicar planned to set up a cinema in the village – and the films would not be “good”.

Rev. R. H. Butler planned to open a cinema at St. Thomas’ Hall in the village because he felt that something was needed. Not everyone wants to go to parties or concerts, he points out, or not everyone wants to stay by the fire every night. And, it was, the option of not wanting to travel to Kylie, or wandering the streets, cinema was the answer.

To the best of his ability, he planned to show “good” movies, and “good” or “pink”, a high-level adventure and a romantic story. Its purpose is to ‘delight, delight, and delight.’
