I have always had a yearning to travel back in time….
I first came across a church that had been turned into a public house a while ago when we went to York. I loved it! (see ‘Throwing yourself on the mercy of the parish these days’……….post) At first I felt a bit uncomfortable about the idea, – but the conversion was so tastefully done and itContinue reading “Ecclesiastical public bars”
We’re always going off to Haworth, (famous for being the home of the Bronte family). Nothing much changes in Haworth. We’ve even stayed there a few times, at the bottom of the hill in a 16th century hotel called Haworth Old Hall.

There was a time when we used to go once or twice a year, but this was the first time we had been in 3 years. Nothing had changed. Perhaps a fewContinue reading “York Break: Haworth still Wuthering after all these years”
