The railway passes near the side of a rivulet, between gently sloping banks covered with well-wooded inclosures and thriving plantations. In the distance … are seen the remains of the once powerful castle of Pickering, magnificent and imposing even in decay, standing on a bold eminence of limestone, and commanding an extensive prospect over the surrounding country.
