Goathland


I always get mixed up between Goathland and Grosmont with both of them having railway stations, being so close to each other and starting with ‘G’.  Last week I went to Goathland, a village in North Yorkshire, on the North York moors infact. The railway is still running, linking with Grosmont and Pickering, and we’ve decided at some point next year to come back and have afternoon tea on the train.  After waiting and seeing a train arrive at the station, we walked alongside the railway, following the footpath to Grosmont.



Goathland was used as the setting for ‘Heartbeat’ (never seen it), and when I googled that to confirm it I found out that the railway was also used in one of the Harry Potter films (never seen them either!).
