Close to Sutton Bank on the road over the moors from Thirsk to Scarborough stands the White Horse of Kilburn. Created by a schoolmaster in 1857 it is reputed to be the largest horse of its kind in England. On clear days it can be seen for many miles and when I have been away for long periods it is a sight that welcomes me home as I turn off the motorway.

It is said that from the top of the escarpment you can watch a train leave York station and follow its course all the way to Darlington; whether this is true or not I don’t know but it certainly is a spectacular view.
