To The Mallyan


The Mallyan is a waterfall. It is near Goathland-where they film Heartbeat! It is a good walk-quite short but just enough to give you an appetite for a lovely pint at the Birch Hall Inn at Beckhole-conveniently sited half way along the walk. The sign on the pub is an oil painting-protected under concave glass. This is me at the waterfall. The only rain we had all weekend was when we arrived at the pub. We didn't mind! The pub has two bars-one is very tiny and the other one is small. It has a tiny shop that sells sweets and crisps. This is Gary and Clare-our lovely hosts and guides.
It was busy at Beckhole!

We went to many pubs-this one (The Lion Inn) is on the moors, and has very thick walls, making it cosy and toasty whatever the weather outside.

Andy, Gary, Andy and Chris the poet in a pub-not sure which one!

More holiday tales tomorrow!

That all looks such fun. Makes me want to take off somewhere. In a kagoul.

It sounds like a great holiday! Oh, I wish we had pubs here. I mean, we do, but they are all rather horrible and commercial ... It sounds lovely to have a good old walk and end up at the local country pub to have a wee pint or two!

Looks like you had a lovely time. I love pubs, but haven't been in one for years.
