The hills are a joy to walk, especially so in kind autumn weather.
A favourite circular walk from our village is up through the fields to the moorland
and then back along one of the old droving roads, known as 'green roads'
But at the start of the week the weather was cold so we went to Hawes and looked around the Dales Museum. They had recreated a kitchen that reminded me of my grandmother's. She had a range just like this one and cooked the most wonderful Yorkshire puddings in the coal heated oven! So many items in the room brought back memories.
My jam pan is just the same.
It was interesting to read about the customs of the area, many of them still continuing to this day. Redmire feast day was being held during our stay and I intended going to see if they still played the game of 'wallops'. But when their Saint's day came it was such lovely weather that we chose to go walking in the hills instead.
After the museum we looked about the town and were given a very warm welcome from this fire in an antique shop.
But nothing was cooking!
