    Hebden Bridge CC (Lower Clough Foot) with great company. The site has new wardens who are definately top drawer material, gotta give them 100% for everything they do :thumb:
    This site is on Cragg Vale which is part of the TDF route (The longest continuous ascent in Britain)

    At Newbury Old Peoples Home.

    It's amazing what they can do for themselves. Some of them even walk.

    I spent the weekend ...............split between helping out at the RAF Fire Service Museum, (RAF Scampton) yesterday, and at home with Rita today, which involved going out for a drive and a nice meal on the way back. :BigGrin:

    Weather wise, it is decidedly tropical down this way. :thumb:

    Cheers,

    Jock.

    The 'abridged' version of our weekend is:

    We went to Withernsea yesterday morning and had a pottle around the market and shops, took the dogs on the beach several times, got some Cornetto type ice-cream cones from Tesco (4 for £1 - rather than pay £2 each for them at the ice-cream van) flew our stunt kite and I even had a paddle in the sea! Then we went up to Hornsea and a quick shuftie round Hornsea Freeport ... what was left of it anyway as many of the little units are closed now and those that are left are just the outlet shops which aren't that cheap, the best thing was the Pound Stretcher shop where they had Tetley Teabags on offer at £1.99 for 160, well in date, so I stocked up. We then went to the main street and got a bit of shopping and then took the dogs into the park for a run around again. Eventually we parked up at the Memorial Hall for the night, hubby went to get some fish and chips and they were the crappiest we've ever, ever, ever had ... they were from Sullivans who are supposed to be 'award winners' ... the fish tasted 'old' and the chips still had their skins on ... we'll never go there again! :Angry: After another potter on the beach with the dogs time for bed, we'd just got nicely snuggled down and then .... boom, boom, boom .... boom, boom, boom ... the Memorial Hall had opened up with a disco at 11.00 pm!!! :Doh: We stuck it for a while and eventually moved at about 12.30 pm and parked up in the carpark for the park where we had a good night's kip. :thumb: The dogs had settled very nicely in their new 'cave beds' originally and we did managed to get them to stay in them once we'd moved 'sites' but eventually hubby relented and let the little s*ds up on the bed ... next time he can go and sleep in the dog beds with them! :Eek!:

    This morning we went off to Skirlington Market which has a very large car boot sale and spend a few hours there, buying all sorts of stuff :RollEyes: then a potter round the market, stopped on the way home in a layby for a late lunch of home-made soup and a sarnie, then home. The dogs are knackered from all the running around they've done! :BigGrin:

    Julia Bradbury does a series called "Best Walks with a View". Last night Friday 26th Feb at 20:00 on ITV the walk was:

    "The Lake District - The Borrowdale Walk Setting off from Rosthwaite, a small village in the jaws of Borrowdale, the expert walker takes in the history and landscape of the Cumbrian fells as she heads up the small peak Castle Crag, which stands at less than 1,000ft. .... From the lush green valley floor to magnificent views over Derwent Water, this walk is a great way to take home a lasting memory of the Lake District, and all in under three hours"
