Spirit of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway
  • Description

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway Preservation Society today operates services along an 18 mile line between the village of Grosmont and the market town of Pickering, travelling through the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and some of the most dramatic scenery in Britain with its landscape of huge skies above the largest tract of heather moorland in England and Wales. On selected dates these services are extended a further 6 miles along the picturesque Esk Valley to the historic port ofWhitby.

The line is a major tourist attraction carrying around 300,000 passengers a year and the olde worlde charm of the line’s country stations together with the remote unspoilt scenery has provided the locations for much film and television work. The hugely popular television series ‘Heartbeat’ and the blockbuster ‘Harry Potter’ motion pictures being just two examples.

Mike Heath has been visiting and photographing the railway for over fifteen years and here through more than 60 new photographs in a handy pocket-sized format, he captures the true spirit of the line, taking us on a photographic journey along the route and highlighting the reasons why the railway can rightly boast to being the most popular heritage line in the country.

For well over 25 years Mike Heath has enjoyed combining his hobbies of photography and visiting preserved railways all over Britain. In that time he has amassed a vast collection of stunning photographs covering all aspects of the railways across all four seasons, day and night.
