Had a great run out to the North Yorkshire Coast yesterday,
weather was great but I did travel through some heavy showers on the return
leg.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />

This is the first long journey I have done in the up! and I
was very pleased with its performance. I travelled a total of 186 miles and recorded
67.5 mpg (mainly A & B roads) this was with the aircon on for 90% of the
journey.

First use of the satnav which I liked how it gave me 3
alternative routes to travel back home, choose the scenic route and went
through places that I had never been through before.

Only problem was water ingress in the boot (see separate thread
""leaky up!""�) which will need attention from the dealer.

Did a few overtakes past dawdling Sunday drivers and
providing you use the gears I was quite impressed with the pick-up of the
engine.

Here are a couple of pictures of my destination.

Quick Quiz: Where am I?

So I am parked in Station Square (next to a disused railway station
last used 1965) in a village on the North Yorkshire Coast.

It is a Victorian Coastal Resort that never was?

Hmm, never thought of Ravenscar. Sounds more likely.

CORRECT!
give that man a prize

If you are a fan of the TV programme "Coast" its history was featured in one of the early series.

Being 600ft above sea level you can see why it never caught on (**** of a trek to the beach and back, except there is no beach only rocks
) nice view though.

It's a strange place, there are a few roads left under an increasing layer of grass. interesting industrial archaeology as well. Nice walk bike ride along the old railway to robinhood's bay if i recall.
