Skipton



This is a series of photos I took of a short drive to Skipton and a walk around the Leeds-Liverpool Canal basin. I took a little detour on my way home, going via Embsay and Eastby and then over Embsay Moor to Barden in Wharfedale.

The statue is of "Fiery" Fred Trueman, a legend in Yorkshire Cricket and a man who the late British Prime Minister Harold Wilson once described as the "greatest living Yorkshireman". Harumpf.....I thought that was me!!

Again, I don't really think many words are needed for this blog. The photos tell the whole story of one of the best drives in the UK. ...
