Helmsley and Rievaulx.

Rewinding to October... here are some images of Helmsley Castle and Rievaulx Abbey from our trip to Yorkshire, after leaving Staithes and before arriving in York. We followed the advice of walking to the abbey from Hemsley (parking space is limited due to visitor centre rennovations). It felt a long walk there, but as always seems to be the case, a much shorter walk back again (6 miles in total). It was rather a murky day so the photos don't do the sites justice, particularly the abbey which is rather amazing. As you will see, I enjoyed trying to photograph the local pheasants. Also, look out for the friendly puppy in the cottage garden near the abbey...

What gorgeous photos. And how lovely to see that lane at the end of summer. It will look a little muddier now I think! CJ xx

Such atmospheric photos. Those columns – I wonder what the abbey must've looked like in its day. Love the pheasant on the fence. Sam x

As beautiful as those buildings are, my favourite picture is the one of the birds - Pheasant, Rook and Hooded Crow all in the same shot, wonderful!
