taken 3 years ago, near to Gillamoor, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Old tracks alongside Lund Road
Old tracks alongside Lund Road
This stone track is still a fully legal Highway; at one time it was the main route if you wanted to go North over the moors.
Over time the tracks became increasingly difficult to negotiate so people just started a new one alongside.
Eventually you had a difficult decision to make at the bottom of the hill - and once committed the tracks are deeply incised so you would not have been able to turn with a heavy cart and team of horses.
