Mrs. Simpson, the postmistress at Marske in 2009
Met this kind lady in Marske. Someone told me if I wanted any historic information about the area she would be the one to see. She was indeed a gold mine of information (or should I say lead mine) ;)

Orgate Farm
Orgate Farm
First glimpse of Orgate. At the time I knew my ancestors had lived at Orgate, but wasn't sure if this house would have been around back in 1639. But it felt amazing just entertaining the thought that this was the home of Ralph Warde de Orgate, my 8x great grandfather!

Orgate House
Orgate House
How long has this venerable house been perched in this rugged landscape, its windows peering out over the comings and goings of an equally rugged people? Decades? or centuries? Oh if only the walls could speak and tell me if the voices heard within them were those of my ancestors, Ralph Warde 'de Orgate', his wife Eden, and their firstborn son Simon.

Road to Skelton Hall
That's one powerful looking bull! I think the breed is Blonde d'Aquitaine, impressive animals, especially in such a beautiful setting as Skelton Lane.

St Edmund the Martyr church in Marske
St Edmund the Martyr church in Marske
Here is a quote about it from Geograph.org.uk
"An Anglican parish church in the small village of Marske in Swaledale, St Edmund's has an ancient history. Parts of the building including some of the columns are as old as 12th century, but much of it, including the box pews, date from c.1630 when it was largely restored. Further alterations were made in 1683 and the chancel was rebuilt in the late 19th century.

The parish is closely linked with the Hutton family, who included Matthew Hutton, Archbishop of York 1595 - 1606."
