Sunshine and Grey Skies

An ugly scar across the heather moor of Carlton Moor, the yellow sandstone of the track accentuated by the threatening skies. The track is typical of estate roads all over the North York Moors providing easy access for the shooting parties.

This track though was probably built by the glider station which used to operate on Carlton Moor and which explains why the moor still retains a large area that is not covered by the Open Access legislation, airfields being exempt. Maybe I shouldn’t be here!
