Track to Hawpike Farm, Draughton
Track to Hawpike Farm, Draughton
This is a footpath now, but was a 'bridle road' in the 19C, and the crossing of the stream just beyond the gate is captioned 'ford' on the 1854 map. These grassy humps and bumps fascinate me; it looks as if the pack-horses used different routes up the slope in the foreground, no doubt according to ground conditions.
