An hour from York, on the edge of the North York Moors, is the lovely market town of Helmsley. The 6-mile return walk along part of the Cleveland Way to Rievaulx is well worth the time and effort, with lovely views in both directions and the reward of the abbey itself in its lush, wooded valley.

The Last Drop Inn, a pub with a multi-layered pun for a name, has featured on this blog before. The clock with the hammer and nail belongs to Barnitt's, the home and garden emporium which occupies a large part of this side of the street. The labyrinthine premises are always worth a visit; if Barnitt's doesn't stock it, you don't need it.
