This is West Plantation at a village called Gilmonby near Bowes, Barnard Castle, County Durham. It is such a place of beauty and tranquillity that many locals request their ashes to be scattered here. The scent of heather flowers after the rain is subtle but exquisite. Teesdale is surrounded in heather moorland but this is said to be a favourite of many including the Red Grouse that breed here.
