The Joys of Autumn in the glorious Yorkshire Dales and Nidderdale AONB
Every year my husband Geoff and I have a discussion about the leaves on the trees in autumn. He always maintains the leaves will be all be on the ground leaving the trees bare by Bonfire Night (sorry to remind you I know there won’t be a Bonfire Night this year) I say the leaves will still be there on the trees!

Hard Banks Ice Cream Parlour and Coffee Shop, just off the A684 in between Aysgarth and Bainbridge in Wensleydale
The latest news in the glorious Yorkshire Dales is the recently opened new ice parlour! We thought we’d give it a go, we had our grandson George staying for the weekend and thought he might appreciate going and having a look too!
West Burton, Thoralby, Bishopdale, Aysgarth and home in a circular manner
If you're looking for a longer walk, then set off from West Burton, about nine and a half miles, or a shorter one, set off from Thoralby.

A Day of Waterfalls in wonderful Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales
I wondered if it might be a nice idea to have a day visiting the waterfalls found in Wensleydale, you may already have bet me to it and done them, please excuse if so. There will be too many in total to visit in just one day, lots of little ones dotted on the map, tried to ‘Google’ how many but no information, so perhaps some of the main ones for starters.
Bluebells, Aysgarth Falls, Thoralby, Newbiggin, West Burton
It’s May and the time of year for bluebells and they are quite magnificent, must have been the perfect weather for them. We do have lots of places where you can wander through bluebell woods, Hackfall Wood and Nutwith Wood near Masham, Cauldron Falls at West Burton, Freeholders Wood near Aysgarth Falls but thought it would be nice to combine a walk with bluebells, spectacular views and not too far. So…………………..
Circular Walk from West Burton, past Aysgarth Falls and St Andrew’s Church
Easter Saturday and yet another glorious day, going to be even hotter than yesterday me thinks. Setting off for my usual morning walk I thought it would be nice to have a treat on the way round and stop for an ice cream at The Mill Race Tea Shop, they sell Yorkshire Dales Ice Cream, excellent choice!
