Pictures of Levisham
This beautiful isolated moorland village overlooks Newton Dale; the road plunges down towards the station, a watermill and a church, on Levisham Beck.
It is a highly scenic spot, where Levisham station is now used as one of the stopping places for the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway, whose tracks take visitors on a riveting journey through spectacular wood and moors scenery between Grosmont and Pickering. The station has often been used as a setting for scenes in some of T.V's most famous productions - these include; All Creatures Great and Small, Brideshead Revisited, Poirot and Sherlock Holmes.
Levisham is in the midst of marvellous walking and horse riding country, where with the changing seasons you can witness a rich variety of country life; in Spring the fields are full of frolicking lambs and in the deep glow of autumn when the trees are clothed in changing reds and golds, you can stroll the moors breathing crystal clear air and the scent of purple heather, while enjoying the diverse activities of the colourful Pheasant and his gentle, less colourful mate. In quiet corners you might be lucky catching site of fox, badger or shy roe deer, and in the hedgerows you will often find fragrant wild flowers and plants.
There are two churches, St.Mary's has an Anglo-Saxon chancel arch, and St.John's in the village is of 19th-century origin. The Bridestones to the east of the village are strange rock formations on National Trust land. The bustling City of York is within easy driving distance.
