Woodland wonder.


A few weeks back, on route to my job site, I caught a glimpse of these remains of what was once a dwelling.


My curiosity was piqued and I stopped to take a look. The well is still sound and in the background the remains of the central chimney can still be seen.


 Even the large granite slabs on which the wooden frame was built are still there.


A derelict farmstead, garden sculpture, or garden planting. Attract the eye and the mind will follow.

The Yorkshire Dales

 The Yorkshire Dales from Herriot to Home

I will be presenting my new talk at Essex Meadows on Thursday Nov 15th at 11am


 Starting in Wensleydale, home of the famous Wensleydale Cheese, where James Herriot first entered the Dales, we will travel south through the dales and over moors


to arrive in the southern most dale of the river aire where I spent my formative years.


I believe this talk is open to the public.
