  • The Yorkshire Moorland Crosses
    brought peace to the north of England He defeated the Picts and the Scots and built Edwin s Borough now called Edinburgh The feeling of security in his time was captured in a phrase which said A woman and her babe might walk scatheless from sea to sea in Edwin s day In AD 625 Edwin married a Christian princess from Kent and promised he would not do anything against the faith she possessed When she came north to begin her new life she was accompanied by a priest called Paulinus who tried in vain to convert Edwin But an incident on Fylingdales Moor in AD 626 caused Edwin to change his mind An assassin was sent by the King of the West Saxons to murder Edwin with a poisoned sword As the villain made his attempt Edwin s chief minister a Christian called Lilla leapt forward to save his master but was killed instead of the sovereign Edwin was so impressed that he buried Lilla where he fell that place bears his name to this day and is called Lilla Howe A cross was erected in memory of Lilla and it stands to this day Edwin did become a Christian and was baptised in York at Easter 627 in a small wooden church built for the occasion York Minster now stands on the site Perhaps the best known of these moorland crosses is that which is wrongly known as Ralph s Cross Close to the lofty meeting place of moorland roads leading to Westerdale Hutton le Hole Rosedale and Castleton on the fringes of Heartbeat Country it is some nine feet tall which carries the scars of recent mindless vandalism Its correct name is Young Ralph because Old Ralph a much smaller stone at a height of some five

  • The North Yorkshire Moors Railway
    one horse or two horses on the steepest hills One stretch between Beck Hole and Goathland was too steep for this and the carriages were winched by a stationary engine The railway tycoon George Hudson acquired the line in 1845 for 80 000 and he quickly introduced steam locomotives after investing in wide scale improvements and new bridges and a tunnel The Beck Hole rope winch remained in use until a fatal accident in 1864 when the rope snapped A four and a half mile diversion to the new Goathland station was built at a cost of 50 000 When many rural lines were closed in England as part of the Beeching Plan the Whitby Pickering line was one of its victims in 1965 after 130 years of service The public outcry created a wave of support for the Yorkshire Moors Railway Preservation Society and British Rail agreed to sell the first stretch of track to the Society in 1968 During the early seventies the Society was replaced by the North York Moors Historical Railway Trust and the many members made it possible to commence preparations for a return of steam train passenger services on the line Just eight years

    Erno who was a Japanese prisoner of war captured at the fall of Singapore and sent to Taiwan on one of the atrocious Hell Ships We met and talked to veteran POWs and families who had lost loved ones remembering particularly one wee small boy proudly wearing his great grandfather s medals as he knelt to have his photo taken on an imported section of the infamous Burma railway These prisoners of war rarely talked about their horrific experiences and in fact were ordered not to talk They became the forgotten army and this weekend gave families an opportunity to remember their loved ones and to educate future generations in the hope that these atrocities will never happen again The events were organised by COFEPOW an association for Children and Families of Far East Prisoners of War COFEPOW has a museum at the Arboretum and members can by arrangement search a database for information about individual Far East prisoners of war The link for this organisation is www cofepow org uk This weekend was a very moving occasion for all and many tears were shed as we remembered all those who served in World War II and suffered so much
