‘Alas poor Jorvik (Centre), maybe next time..’

‘Throwing yourself on the Mercy of the Parish these days…..

‘Onwards Roman Soldiers marching through the Treasurers House’

 ‘When in the ancient city of York BATH!

‘The Haunted House at Stonegate York’

 Coming soon…Haworth (on the way back home)

Back from our small York break!  I love York I do.  And I haven’t been for ages.  The last time we were there, we were smokers (but we weren’t drinking at the time…that lasted 5 years))  It was vice verce this time though..  We found a few new things to do (unbelievable, considering how many times we’ve been over the years!)

We saw a very unusual pub, some ghostly goings on, my favorite statue given a new slant, various interesting bits of architecture and rounded it off with a trip to Haworth on the way back!  Alas poor Jorvick (centre), we didn’t bother this time.

To be continued tomorrow
