Newby Moor, April 2008

Newby Moor

This lowland common between Ingleton and Clapham, North Yorkshire, is traversed by the A65 trunk road. Grazing has been infrequent in recent years, in part because of livestock deaths on the road, and gorse, thorn and ash scrub are encroaching parts of the common. (Photo: Angus Winchester).
