Bolton Abbey

We visited Bolton Abbey during the very hot spell for Mr E’s birthday treat.

Just stunning.

Looking down to the river and the stepping stones

So good to see everyone enjoying themselves.

I think what I liked best was that people had put away their phones and gadgets and were just enjoying fresh air and the river. Even world weary teenagers!

  14. Beautiful photos of the Abbey, Cathy – thank you! The glorious green grass always astounds me. What’s the river’s name? (My U.K. geography is wobbly. πŸ˜‰)

    • Thanks, It’s the River Wharfe, and runs through a valley called Wharfedale, hence the area of North Yorkshire is known as the Dales. Where I live is on the edge of the North York Moors.

  15. Look at all those people, out and about, having fun! It’s a beautiful setting!

    • I’d only been in the autumn before so all the people were a huge surprise, lovely to see families and picnics everywhere.

  16. It looks like you had a good day out. I’ve been to Bolton Abbey several times and enjoyed every visit, it’s a lovely place and great for photos πŸ™‚
