Artist's Description

Here is a typical street scene in the small village of Grosmont, North Yorkshire, where OEngland people come from far and wide to see the heritage steam locomotive pass by. The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is a heritage railway in North Yorkshire, England running through the North York Moors National Park. First opened in 1836 as the Whitby and Pickering Railway, the railway was planned in 1831 by George Stephenson as a means of opening up trade routes inland from the then important seaport of Whitby. The line closed in 1965 and was reopened in 1973 by the North York Moors Historical Railway Trust Ltd. The preserved line is now a significant tourist attraction and has been awarded many industry accolades

Grosmont is just one of several villages where the train stops and as such lots of people gather just down from the Station Tavern to see it. The train travels 24 miles through the Yorkshire’s amazing scenery and each station boasts displays of different steam eras. On the other side of the railway tracks are lots of shops to tantalize anyone’s tastes – antique or modern books, handcrafted items, a Co-Op full of local treats, and the Old Schoolhouse that has been renovated into a fantastic coffee shop with homemade British treats!

Lucky for me I have a friend who lives just up the road from the tavern so it’s always a treat to see or hear the train go by. Photo taken in 2016 with my Samsung cellphone camera. By the way, the tavern serves the biggest plate of delicious fish ‘n chips I’ve ever tasted! I love this area of England so much, I wish I could move there to make my life!

Dedicated to my dear friend Jill – the lady who lives in the house with the blue door just up the hill from here.
