Minster and Moors

Our Easter Holiday in Yorkshire

April 2002

 Family on ramparts of Cliffords Tower with York Minster in the background

It wasn't what were expecting - record temperatures and sunshine in April in Yorkshire.  We enjoyed Clifford's Tower and its view over York.

Exploring on the moors

Rambling over the moors.  Tracing the stream to its source.

Springvale Cottage Whitby

And we rented a cottage in Whitby.  Very pretty.

Alice on Whitby beach

Whitby is sooo bracing, as they say.  Playing sandcastles on the beach may be traditional but it was a challenge in the sharp wind.

Family on Whitby headland

And the Whitby headland is exactly the place where the wind comes in from the North Sea.  Great views, if you can keep your feet.

Humber Bridge spans the Family

The Humber Bridge.  Engineering spectacular.  Andrew came to visit it under construction in the late 70s.  Reminds us of a certain golden bridge somewhere else.

On a boulder on the moors

And a picnic where the moors end.  Great stuff.
