5. Baysdale Abbey and Ingleby Greenhow Moor


5a. Baysdale Abbey

Baysday Abbey Farm

Presumably the remains of Baysdale Abbey have been incorporated into the current farm buildings and dwellings?

Depression carved into a rock where prehistoric man ground the grain-corn/wheat? This one is found on the moorland above Baysdale, near where the road to Kildale

A depression carved into a rock where prehistoric man ground the grain-corn/wheat? This one is found on the north-west moorland above Baysdale (Battersby Moor, OS grid 609068?), near where the road from Kildale turns down sharp left, and a about 100m on the right on the Cleveland Way footpath.


5c. A Cross, Boundary Stone and Burton Howe

On the right is the 'Jenny Bradley' cross on an ancient trackway that joins the Rudland Rigg Road. The cross has a broken shaft in its medieval base. By its side stands a tall boundary stone marking the beginning of the Ingleby Estate.

5d. The Old Ironstone Railway and Incline Top

The bed is all that remains of the ironstine mining railway from Rosedale to Battersby Junction.

 

The point where the track begins to descend at Incline Top on Greenhow Moor.

 

Looking down the incline as the weather closes in!
