Nice place to spend some time
Lots of pubs - even the police walk round in pairs
In a nutshell
We've got it easy here. Everything is within easy reach without the mass congestion and over crowding of big cities
It’s the UK’s newest purpose built international Airport. It was built on the site of the former RAF Finningley. The base was opened in 1936 and served as a Bomber Command base during World War II and the Cold War. The Ministry of Defence closed the base in April 1996 and it was feared that this would be the end. In June 1999 Peel Holdings purchased the site with the view to turning it into a commercial/passenger airport serving 2.3m passengers and 62,000 tonnes of freight. Why did they call it Robin Hood? Who knows.

One lazy hazy Sunday, take a trip into Thorne and have a pub lunch in one of the many taverns, then a short walk by the canal, looking at the narrow boats and then a rest in the park listening to the band.
The band plays most Sundays throughout the summer, rain or shine.
Unfortunately, the post box has been removed and the building demolished. A shame really as the shop and its owner were the basis for the sitcom 'Open All Hours' with the two Ronnies, but time passes .......
