Much against the forecast…. and after very heavy overnight rain (the right time for rain) we had a fabulous cold but sunny morning.  Too good to waste so a walk at Darley Abbey Park and surrounds.   Apart from the Park itself and its Arboretum it also takes in Darley Mills, part of the River Derwent World Heritage Site.  So history and beauty all in one circular walk….. enjoy it with us whilst the sun shines….. 🙂

Silent Sunday…. Off the Church

Yorkshire-2010--_0054qqqbb

Bolton Abbey….  standing above the River Wharfe in Wharfedale, North Yorkshire.  Bolton Abbey dates back to the 12th century, an Augustinian Monastery of power and wealth.  Like so many Monasteries across Britain, King Henry VIII, and his Dissolution Act brought the Abbey’s influence to a sudden end.
