Borrowby North Yorkshire

A village of steep streets and narrow lanes, it has a wide view from its little hilltop between the Hambleton Hills and the great Plain of York. Standing by the old cross on the green, we look for miles over the Plain, so richly wooded and dotted with towns and villages that an ambassador at Henry the Eighth's Court once declared the view without parallel in Europe.
