Old road across the moor
Old road across the moor
This track and bridleway marks the original line of the 1777 Skipton to Harrogate turnpike across Kex Moor. The route was abandoned around 1827 when a new line along the valley of Hall Beck [now A59] was constructed. This new road is still closed by the occasional rock fall or landslip. The Menwith Hill 'golf balls' can be seen in the distance.
