I am leading a walk this morning and thought you might like to join us. I took the pictures a month ago when I was planning it.
First stop the Market Cross, and onto the church.
Then into the millennium garden and the Peace Pole
With wonderful views over the Vale of Pickering.
Can you spot the windmill in the distance, it has no sails. In fact it never had sails as the neighbours complained it was an eye sore so it was never completed. NIMBYism is not a new phenomena.
I love the mosaic created by the local school children as we leave the garden and head up a field.
Up we go
There’s the church in the distance. And now we have arrived at the site of a castle.
Long since demolished.
All that remains is this pond which used to have fish in it to feed the castle inhabitants.
Now a favourite picnic spot in the summer. Back down the way we came.
Pub any one for some coffee, mulled wine or cider? Hope you enjoyed the little stroll, a welcome relief from the frenetic preparations for Christmas.
