Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Time and Tide Part II (and a little bit)


Yesterday Gerry asked what the view was like looking inland, from the site of the wreck of the Helevita, ‘would it be this isolated or would it show a cheerful holiday destination?’

I don’t think much can have changed since the night of the wreck, although there might be more bracken (which is what is being burnt off, left of shot)

The house, the Old Rectory, is  owned by The National Trust and is available for holiday lets.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Now that is isolated, even by my standards. I like it. Miss Sadie and the Cowboy would love it.

  2. If I could, I would — spend some time there. It’s wonderful. Not only that, I’m reminded that the housekeeping guru who reigned supreme here during the 1960s and 70s was named Peg Bracken. I’ve never heard the word “bracken,” but now I’m wondering if that was the source of her family name.

  3. Thanks for more good pictures and interesting links. xx

  4. It does look very isolated but what a place to stay for a break away from it all. Beautiful.

  5. Hello there. You’ve not heard from me in ages on these pages. I suddenly noticed this evening that my Blogger notifications haven’t been in evidence since I installed Windows 10. Don’t know how I didn’t notice that. Anyway, I’ve just been catching up with the wonderful photos in your posts, and have now scrolled back to January 30th. I hope Spud is continuing to do well and I’m glad your motor caravan trips are providing so much blogfodder. I shall now work out how to get these blogs attached to something I might stumble across more often. Looking forward to seeing you again
