View from the Poet’s Pavement

April 12, 2017


Unlike centuries of poets and painters I was not struck by the muse  so much as struck dumb by the view and shaky legs on a recent visit to the limestone pavement above Malham Cove.

Also called the Poet’s pavement after the poet Thomas Gray, and the location for a scene in the Harry Potter films, the area did inspire my husband Ian to take many creative photos such as the one above.

The pavement and cove continue to draw huge numbers of visitors to the area each year, and while not all will find inspiration, it is impossible not to feel a sense of achievement when reaching the top.

  1. Glad to see pictures of places I couldn’t reach Judith

    • I was not sure I could reach the top either but I persuaded my knees that the view would be worth it. Still waiting for the words to follow. Clearly we must all be inspired by different things.
