5 Reasons to Explore Robin Hood’s Bay

5 Reasons to Explore Robin Hood’s Bay

Down the coast from Whitby lies the less well known Robin Hood’s Bay. Built into the cliffside the old cottages and pubs line the route from beachside to cliff top, it’s one of the strange places where cars are not really welcome and the best way to access this idyllic spot is on foot.

When you find yourself away with family for the weekend in the countryside, specifically the Yorkshire Dales, and your family includes 3 children 10 years and under there is one activity that seems a surefire hit – a visit to a farm!

A Very Big House in the Country

A Very Big House in the Country

If you didn’t just sing that title then who are you and go and check out the band Blur here before you read on. Done that? Right OK. My Grandma turned 85 at the end of Dec last year and to celebrate she wanted to take the whole family away for the weekend and in a large country house – you the kind you would buy if you were mega rich.

Easter Monday Walkies

Easter Monday Walkies

Yesterday (Easter Monday) is a bank Holiday in the UK and for once the weather did not involve rain! I met up with a couple of friends (and a gorgeous border collie called Brooke) for a wander round my local park, Heaton Park(you can find some more information about this little gem of a park here). One of my friends doesn’t know the park very well so for her and Brooke it was a little Easter monday adventure. As it was…

Welcome back, hopefully I didn’t bore you too much last time with all that history, but it is really quite interesting and wouldn’t be the place it is now without it. Now before I go on with my tales of my holiday there are a couple of things I really would like you to know.

Cuba!

Cuba!

Hi I’m back! So first off in case you forgot I had a pretty busy August where I moved back to home to Manchester and then I went away to Cuba for 10 days.

The Somme: 100 years on Manchester Remembers

The Somme: 100 years on Manchester Remembers

Friday, July 1st 2016 marked 100 years since the start of the Battle of the Somme. One of the bloodiest battles in history, 19,240 men died on that first day alone and more than 1 million were killed or wounded throughout the 4 month offensive. Of those sent ‘over the top’ on that first day were the civilian soldiers belonging to Lord Kitchner’s army and in particular the Salford and manchester pals of the Lancashire Fusiliers were some of the…
