The Knaresborough Viaduct

House in the rock - excavated from the crag by Thomas Mill
in 1770. Originally known as Fort Montague and owned by
the Mill family until 1997.

The well worn steps of the Knaresborough castle.

Chapel of Our Lady of the Crag - In 1408 this chapel was excavated as a shrine by a local mason in thanksgiving for his son being saved from a falling rock. Permission for the shrine was granted by King Henry IV

Shopping in Leeds

Had a great time today shopping in Leeds. Bought three pairs of shoes (one pair of heels, one pair of keds and one pairs of sandals), so I'm sure Shelley and Kiri will be proud. Also spotted these fun purple ones - but kept my purse in handbag and walked away quickly. I know they're silly but I love them! Back in Harrogate now and off to 'Clash of the Titans' later.

A day in York

The huge York Minister which took 215 years to build.
Went inside and said a prayer for all my wayward friends :)
but vicar said I was wasting my time.

Stumbled upon the birth place of the famous
bonfire man ...spooky!

Below: Not Guy Fawkes just some random weirdo that told me
to pinch his behind.

Woodhall Spa

Woodhall Spa - the venue for Tracy and Andy's reception. There are only 40 rooms in this exclusive venue and as you can see from the photo of my room, they are gorgeous.

Wedding of the Year

Thanks to Tracy and Andy for inviting me to their beautiful wedding. The day was so thoroughly planned and everything went smoothly. Everyone ate, drank and got merry...Ian more than most :) Not only was I privileged to be included but was shouted a night at the exclusive Wood Hall hotel and spa (by the bride and groom).
Now Ian and Nicole inform me that their wedding will be in Cyprus June 2011, so no new car on the horizon for me :)
