Today we have chosen to travel across the Yorkshire Dales towards our next campsite near Garstang in Lancashire. Good decision!
First of all, we passed through Ravensworth again and I managed to take a few more photos of the Castle.
the remaining parts of Ravensworth Castle date from the late 14th century, when it belonged to Henry, 1st Baron Fitz-Hugh. In 1391 he enclosed 200 acres around the castle, creating a park. The castle started to be pulled down in the 16th century, and the stone was used for other buildings in the area.
I don’t think we have ever taken this route before and it was fantastic. Photos speak louder than words so…
We stopped at the delightful village of Thwaite in Swaledale for some refreshment.
We eventually reached Humblescough Farm near Nateby in Lancashire and Bessie found herself opposite a very pretty pond. Click the individual photos to see close-ups of Coot & Son (or Daughter) and the pond at sunset.
Lovely header shot! Did you get any cheese? The viaduct reminds me of the one the Hogwarts Express crosses.
Maybe it was this one? It’s quite a famous one.
Just looked it up and Harry Potter films used Glenfinnan viaduct.
Stunning scenery but I particularly like the thistle photo.
Nice isn’t it?
Incredible scenery – I particularly like the photo captioned ‘we were so lucky with the weather’.
