MALLYAN SPOUT (02/08/09)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA WEST BECK.........A beck is a stream, this one running from the moors above Goathland down to Beck Hole. The water is very acidic being heavily laden with peat. My last day for a while in the area so off early tourist dodging to Mallyan Spout. A Spout is a Waterfall..... Am I still in England?

This Spout is around sixty feet high and quite beautiful. The gorge it discharges into is almost tropical in the abundance of it's vegetation. Only needs a parrot or two, maybe a leach or piranha and I could be in the Amazon.

That's all but before I go I will pass on a comment from the Telegraph letters page. A sign on a plastic container recycling skip. 'SQUASH* BOTTLES FIRST' Why? And how can they tell?

*Squash in the UK is a concentrated fruit juice one dilutes with water.
