A drive in the North Yorkshire Dales

We set off one Sunday afternoon into the Dales, previously unvisited territory.

We arrived in Richmond, a small Georgian market town where English Heritage manage Richmond Castle. A poddle around the town made me long for the large shops of London but I liked the quaintness of the streets.

There is a Georgian theatre and plenty to occupy 2-3 hours.

Off we then went on a meander across country roads, passing this impressive railway arch.

Eventually we arrived in Hawes, a one street town with a couple of antiques shops and a very interesting all-day auction, which we sat in on until we really had to leave because we’d promised to be home by dusk.

We must come this way again we thought.
