taken 3 years ago, 3 km from Selside, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Thieves Moss from Sulber Gate
Thieves Moss from Sulber Gate
The moss is an extensive tract of heather and other acid-loving plants, unusual in an area composed largely of bare limestone. Who the 'thieves' were is not known - I wonder if one of them had anything to do with the nearby SD7772 : Beggar's Stile? On the skyline is the familiar lion's-head profile of Pen-y-Ghent with Fountains Fell to its right.
