Henry thought that Snilesworth sounded like a nice place – ‘Very Yorkshire!’ he said – so I told him a bit about its unfortunate history back a long time ago – see here. Mr Mark Osborne seems to have managed the site since 2000 and delivered a record grouse shooting day for the North York Moors in 2007. Mr Osborne has been unluckily associated with a few places where raptors have breathed their last. Henry was missing the open moorland; I think he just wanted to chase a few Meadow Pipits about really. And so we headed towards Snilesworth.
