Morris-Goodall, not Maurice. 201 is A H Langley's Singer,
199 is J D Barnes' Singer (almost certainly 200 between them,
J R H Baker's Singer). 184 is H A Hardwick-Sewell's 30-98
Vauxhall.

This super photo is taken at West Stonesdale, just beyond Keld on the B6270 in upper Swaledale. The cars are turning right at the junction and in 100 yards will tackle West Stonesdale hill, also known as Silver Hill. Whilst relatively short, the hill has two of the sharpest hairpin bends imaginable, and cars with insufficient lock cannot get round in one go. As the hill is visible from the junction competing cars would wait until the hill was clear before attempting it. The scene is exactly the same today and anyone wishing to recreate this picture should make sure they enter the next Pennine Run I organise! The road leads onto Tan Hill the highest pub in England.
