Crossing Urra Moor
The highest point in the North York Moors is found on Urra Moor, ‘Urra’ being an old English word for ‘dirty hill’. That name seems a bit harsh although its not always as calm and peaceful here.
The track over the moor is part of both the Lyke Wake Walk and Cleveland Way long distance walks. This means it is popular so I had to be patient waiting for it to be free of traffic.
A cup-marked rock can be seen in the foreground, one of many prehistoric remains that can be found on these moors.
