Hannah, Ben and I took the opportunity of my finishing school early on Friday (due to a staff training day) and the Bank Holiday to go away! 😀
We stayed on a farm and, being a History teacher, I dragged Hannah and Ben round Rievaulx Abbey, Wharram Percy and Stamford Bridge. Here’s some of the photos I took:
Created with Admarket’s flickrSLiDR.
The walk from Helmsley to Rievaulx Abbey was advertised as 1.5 miles in each direction. Having since measured it on Google Earth, I can assure you it’s at least 3 miles each way! With a 2-stone baby on your back and up-and-down hills, that’s not easy-going. Hence the bottle of beer for the journey back courtesy of the English Heritage shop… 😉
The photos are in a geotagged set at Flickr here.
