    The Big VT Meeting

    VT Members Relax

    Eight of us met up in York for a day's sightseeing and a lovely lunch in Betty's, and then I took us all to one of my favourite little villages, Nun Monkton. There's not a lot here, but it's pretty, it's quiet and it has a pub. What more can you want?

    Village Duck Pond

    village green and pond

    This laid back country village centres around the green and duck pond. The cottages here looked liked an idyllic place to live - pricey too I should imagine being a short distance away from the historic city of York.

    River Flood Guage?

    Marie and Laura measure up

    On the way down to the river look out for the measure against the wall - I think thats to gauge the height of flood water which comes up here. Marie and Laura did the honours posing here for me to add some colour to the pic ;-)

    parish church

    The parish church of St Mary's is very difficult to picture with the foliage falling in front of it!
    Couldn't get a decent picture of the inside either but its unusual aisle-less nave from c. 1175 is richly ornamented.

    Alice Hawthorne

    The only pub in the village is named after a racehorse . Alice Hawthorne, bred at Shipton near York in 1845 wins the last of the 51 races she won. Just across the Ouse from her birthplace in Nun Monkton the pub still carries her name.

    Hatch End Gardens

    yew topiary

    Apparently there are gardens that can be visted at certain times of the year at Hatch End, The Green, Nun Monkton:
    The garden has been evolving since 1996. and alongside mixed borders there is a lime walk, topiary, yew and beech hedges and many different vistas. We didn't see them but I guess this could be part of it from the other side of the wall!

    boats on the river

    On the river you can admire the boats which are moored, go skinny dipping if you wish as long as you don't put the fishermen off!
    Private fishing goes on along this stretch of the water.

    down to the river we go....

    Follow the path down to the river - Steve and Mick are leading the way. Here you'll probably find boats moored, people were swimming too. This is where the Ouse and the Nid meet.
