Many thanks for the awards on my last upload of Saltburn Sunset and given by mikesmith,pamelajean and TrevBatWCC. This was taken last week with more heather on the North Yorkshire Moors. Fryup is a hamlet in North Yorkshire in England. It is in the civil parish of Danby and is located alongside Great Fryup Beck in the Great Fryup Dale. It may be found at grid reference NZ720046.

Fryup is separated into two small valleys or 'dales' these are called, Great Fryup Dale and Little Fryup Dale. Most people live in Great Fryup Dale, with Little Fryup only having 8 or 9 farms and cottages. Great Fryup doesn't have any shops or even a pub, there is a phone box, post box and Village hall. There is also a local cricket pitch and Quoits pitch.

An old woman at Fryup was well known locally for keeping the “Mark’s e’en watch” (24 April), as she lived alongside a corpse road known as the “Old Hell Road”. In this, a village seer would hold a vigil between 11 pm and 1 am, in order to look for the wraiths of those who would die in the following 12-month period.

The curious name of Fryup probably comes from the Old English *Frige-hop: Frige was an Anglo-Saxon goddess cognate with the Old Norse goddess Frigg; hop denoted a small valley. Oakley Walls, Esk Valley, North York Moors National Park, North Yorkshire, England: Oakley Walls is stretch of road, between Danby and Lealholm, high above the River Esk Valley, from which you get excellent views across to Fryup Dale. There are lots of places to safely pull off the road for a picnic and a good starting point for a lovely short walk in the North York Moors National Park. The wild moorland of the sheep and purple heather overlaps with the farmland of the Esk Valley
Many thanks for recent clicks and comments .All very much appreciated......Phil
