Memorial Stone near Water Ark, Goathland

A short series of posts inspired by looking through my older printed photos, before going digital and before this website existed.

This spot is where Eller Beck flows through a ravine under a bridge on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

The stone commemorates Sydney Porritt who drowned aged 16 in 1908, in the photo my friends are doing their best to re-create that moment.

  1. I like the way Rich and I look so retro. I don’t remember clearly but I imagine we drank lashings of ginger beer at some point.
