Rievaulx Abbey

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. 


  1. That's somewhere I've never been. I don't even know how you pronounce it!

  2. Sorry for the delay in replying. The pronunciation is "Reevo" rhyming with "heave-ho".
