Bolton Abbey was destroyed by King Henry VIII.  The graveyard is still active, as is a rebuilt section of the church behind this part.

after matching the hatch all day in Burnsall with little result, i tried a big CDC ant with white legs and this fellow slammed it.  the picture is blurry because i hold my breath when i lift the fish out of the water to make sure it goes back in pretty quick.  this fish confirmed once again my opinion that the pool next the parking lot is always worth a try, since everyone else knows it's far too pressured.

the grayling--looks rather like a chub, right? the famous blue fin is all folded up along the back.

Yorkshire Dales scenery...there are no trees on the hill tops because Neolithic man cut them all down, and the resulting exposed slopes and thin soil mean that trees can't grow up there now.  Those areas are called moors, and they're mostly covered in bracken and heather.
