On the road for a few days, back up North.



First signs of former heavy industry in the East Midlands.



Sheffield is a city of two contrasting half: the leafy, Victorian west and the East dominated by housing estates with some remnants of industry along the Don in the centre.

After Sheffield, it was over the North Yorkshire Moors to enjoy the gothic charms of Whitby.

If you ever wanted to know what Whitby was like in the 1950s… go to Whitby.

Captain Cook memorial

Another ruin on the moors: Rievaulx Abbey

Then it was back over the Pennines to Lancashire.
