Pickering is on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors. If you head north from the roundabout, you will travel what is known locally as the Whitby road. This traverses the east side of the moor and passes Fylingdale Early Warning Station, Sleights and on to Whitby. It is a wonderful drive or walk over the moor and refreshments can be taken at the The Fox & Rabbit near Lockton. The moor is bleak in winter and magnificent in summer. You will enjoy a trip over the moor in good weather, but do not attempt it when the snow starts to fall. To the east at the roundabout is Scarborough passing through delightful villages such as Thornton-le-Dale, Brompton, Snainton, Ayton and Wykeham. Kirkbymoorside and Helmsley are to the west and Malton to the south. The picture, top left, is taken from Riseborough. looking towards Pickering. The picture top right is the roundabout as you enter Pickering. The station and the main street can be seen below.
