North Yorkshire Reports
Pickering, North Yorkshire
Review of Pickering by Lisa on July 25th, 2011
Pickering is great destination, just on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors it makes a great base for exploring this beautiful National Park as well as the Coast with clean beaches, many having a blue flag. From Pickering you can catch the North Yorkshire Moors Railway which snakes up through the moors stopping at Grosmont and Goathland where Heartbeat the TV series was filmed.
For several days after my first book was published, I carried it about in my pocket and took surreptitious peeps at it to make sure the ink had not faded. - J M Barrie
