Farndale from Blakey Bank - North York Moors
Farndale is a picturesque valley located in the heart of the North York Moors. It contains two small hamlets, each compromising of only a few houses, called Low Mill and Church Houses. Low Mill is located towards the bottom end of the valley and Church Houses is located towards to top end of the valley. Heading north north-eastwards up out of Farndale from Church Houses will take you up Blakey Bank. It's one of those banks where you think you are at the top, you round the next corner, and then it just goes on again. Blakey Bank is a climb of over 1300 ftfrom the bottom to the top, and although it's not really steep, it's fairly long and persistent.
