You may wonder how the Edinburgh Woollen Mill store in Helmsley relates to railways. Firstly their head office is Waverley Mill in Langholm, which sits alongside the former terminus of the Langholm branch running from the Waverley route, but secondly, and more pertinent, is that the stone arch over their Helmsley store entrance was created from the stone recovered from the demolished narrow humped overbridge HMY7 that gave access, across the Gilling to Pickering line, to Rye House Farm near Harome.
