  • Lancaster Castle

    Lancaster Things to Do

    We have a surplus of castles in the UK. They are a draw for peoples with a shorter history. I confess I am not immune to their proud and noble bearing either so Lancaster Castle received a visit.

  • View From A Hill

    Rawtenstall Favorites

    The view across the valley from the top of one of the terraces. It would have been better on a sunny day (must be quite lovely then). Some of the old mill chimneys can be seen in the picture.

  • Churchyard

    Rawtenstall Favorites

    The church and churchyard at Rawtenstall are quite nice. In fact Rawtenstall had a few nice old buildings (not VERY old, but from the industrial past), and also a big park containing a museum.On a sunny day we'd have spent more time, but it was a cold, wet, misty sort of day, and we only really came to see Fitzpatricks. Favourite memory? Well,...

  • Steep Terraced Streets

    Rawtenstall Favorites

    Rawtenstall lies in a valley and many of its streets run down the hills into the valley bottom. In common with most "working class" housing of the era, the streets are terraces, and very fine they are too. The brickwork with its contrasting pointing makes a very attractive sight. I love these terraces that run down hills, be they here or on North...
