Number 41 in the series.
There are no doubt many people - and not just Yorkshire tykes - who would claim that the north riding of Yorkshire, or North Yorkshire as the county is known, is the most scenic part of England. Certainly there is no shortage of beauty, both natural and man-made. There are the dales and the North York Moors as well as the sometimes dramatic coast, then there is the city of York with its monster, city walls and medieval buildings. There are the seaside towns of Scarborough and Whitby (Captain Cook's home port) and the inland towns of Knaresborough and Harrogate. All would provide pictures suitable for this series. In the end I have decided to borrow Bob Tuck's dramatic picture of the entrance to Whitby harbour with the ruins of the abbey on the headland.
