Yorkshire Moors [Feb. 9th, 2006|10:17 am]
Tony Grist

It looks bleak, but in fact it's only ten minutes from the nearest conurbation.

Ailz and I were talking about how up until about 20 years ago only the very poor lived on the moors and now you have to be a millionaire to afford the house prices.

She tells me that moorland folk are known as "moor peeps".

I don't think it looks bleak at all - I think it's beautiful. I'd love to live in that little house.

These places do get cut off in heavy snow- and the weather is often extreme- or "wuthering" to use a Bronteism.

There was a good stiff wind blowing while I was taking this.

Lovely as the landscape undoubtedly is I prefer to have a few trees around, myself.

Trees are good, too. A small cottage in the middle of a forest isn't something I'd shake my head at, were it offered.

There hills were forested once. Their present state is entirely due to them having been cleared for their timber and then used for grazing sheep. Left to themselves they would revert to woodland.

Yes, I think a few trees would be nice.

But the solitariness of it is very very tempting.

"Moor peeps"! I wonder why?

I'd love to live in that house in that beautiful place.

"peeps" is slang for "people", generally one's friends, in the US anyway. i refer you to a song by shaggy, circa 2001, in which shaggy tells his girl "closer than my peeps you are to me". god i hate my generation.

Thank you! I think of "peeps" as those cloying candy chickens we have at Easter...this is new information for me.

The British comedian Harry Enfield, in character as Stavros the Greek stall-holder, popularized the catch-phrase, "hello everybody peeps!" in the 80s.
