Boltby North Yorkshire
BOLTBY. Its glory is its approach from Felixkirk, the lovely ride giving us magnificent views of the Vale of York.
After passing the stone gatehouse of Mount St John (the great house supposed to be on the site of a preceptory of the Knights Hospitallers) we soon face the splendour of the Hambleton Hills, where, deep in a valley through which flows the Gurt of Beck from Boltby Moor, the village lies.
Its cottages are of stone and brick, and the tiny modern church, in 13th century style, has a bellcot.
Just below it a pretty humped bridge crosses the stream, which runs under the road in fair weather and floods it when it races down after a storm.
