Barmoor and The Nab near Hutton-le-Hole


This is low moorland on the southern edge of the North York Moors proper.

The escarpment to the south is a striking geological feature formed by an overlying layer of limestone, and marks the boundary of fertile farmland extending south through Ryedale towards The Wolds.

It runs some 40 miles from Sutton Bank to the coast near Scarborough.

The hillside mid-distance has a very striking Hollow Way (ancient track) on its flank.

The last sequence shows the ancient trackway(s) heading north, they cross the modern road further up.

It's interesting it was a 'dual carriageway' (!) to avoid problems passing oncoming horse drawn traffic.

On the promontory are three Tumuli - just visible in video.

The area below it is curiously muddled and rather wet, mainly dominated by bracken and a few birch trees.

You can see remains of enclosures and possibly peat digging.
