This guide is being updated as all of the photo links were lost when Fotopic died. Links to Flickr are the updated working links. Right, if your going to the NYMR, here's some good places to photo / video! If you don't mind walking 3 miles the rail trail from Grosmont to Goathland gives some good spots, its well signposted and pretty obvious so you shouldn't get lost! First spot on the trail (from Grosmont end) is as you go past the sheds, should let you get photos like: http://nymrphotos.fotopic.net/p14167761.html http://nymrphotos.fotopic.net/p14167764.html http://nymrphotos.fotopic.net/p8060107.html The rail trail then swings away from the railway, but as it goes you can get photos like this as the engines start the 1:49 climb. Esk Valley Morning shot Go under the railway bridge, which is just past the end of the head shunt and into the field for this shot: Photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/60283079@N05/8715860770/in/photostream/ Map: http://tinyurl.com/eskvalleymorning Google Maps ref: 54.427491,-0.730972 Afternoon / Evening shot Photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/60283079@N05/8714740665/in/photostream Map: http://tinyurl.com/eskvalleyafternoonmap Google Maps ref: 54.427703,-0.733968 Afternoon / Evening in the landscape shot Next easily accessible spot is Beckhole. Its signposted off the rail Trail, BUT its a very steep climb up to the railway bridge! Map http://nymrphotos.fotopic.net/p9269958.html Its right in the middle of the 1:49 though, so you do get good effects. Rail Trail will then lead you up to Goathland where they filmed Heartbeat. http://nymrphotos.fotopic.net/p41065720.html http://nymrphotos.fotopic.net/p35650490.html http://nymrphotos.fotopic.net/p35650492.html http://nymrphotos.fotopic.net/p34724103.html Another good spot is the curve at Darnholme, a 5 minute walk from the station (cross the tracks, so you are on the moor side not the village side of the station, and follow the path to the left) Map http://garylyne.zenfolio.com/p68288280/h31f54055#h31f54055 Last good opportunity between Grosmont and Goathland is at Water Ark bridge. This should be labelled as Thomasson Foss. The paths round here get VERY muddy when its been raining though, and the river is very noisy if you're trying to video - http://garylyne.zenfolio.com/p26236612/h2ce085dc#h2ce085dc http://garylyne.zenfolio.com/p68288280/h3df1d1bf#h35383971 http://garylyne.zenfolio.com/p68288280/h3df1d1bf#h3df1d1bf There's a fair few paths round this area so if you don't like one location move around.
