Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Out and About in 2017.


This year I have really enjoyed getting out and about with family and friends. January saw us up on the moors in Dalby Forest at the Bridestones.  I recall a very tasty pub lunch rounded off a perfect day.

February saw us in Carcassone, France with son and fiancée to celebrate our friends golden wedding anniversary.

March was the month I wrote one of my Yorkshire village posts, this is Cropton.

April saw us out with son Mr J, fiancée Mrs M,grandson Master H, step granddaughter Miss S and Coco the dog, here on the old Roman Road across the moors.

May and I had got into going regular walks at last, here by the North York Moors Railway.


June and we are on holiday in Greece and paddling up a river gorge, the best fun this year.

July and another village post from Sinnington where I also went to the fruit farm and picked raspberries.

August and time to get out and enjoy the heather.

September and we headed to Bradford and the Industrial museum where I explored my ancestors’ working life in a woolen mill.

October and time to enjoy the autumn colours in Westonbirt Arboretum.

November and a late autumn walk around the York city walls.


December and snow

A lovely year spent in our beautiful world.
