We took a family trip to the Black Country Living Museum for their 1940s weekend. A great museum and lots of stuff to see. I was surprised by the number of volunteers who dressed up.
Took a few days out and went up to Yorkshire. Started off in Leeds and Harrogate.
Then we travelled on to Ilkley where we stayed for a couple of nights. The day walking along the River Wharfe was the key point of the visit. We walked from Barden, with Barden Tower and Barden Bridge back into Ilkley. About 13 miles in total and some lovely countryside.
We finished off that day with a wonderful meal in the Moody Cow restaurant in Ilkley itself.
On the way home, we stopped off in Holmfirth, famous for the base of filming for The Last Of The Summer Wine. Very lovely little town and we did pop into the LOTSW museum.
Me and the missus went to Alvechurch for this rally/festival. Was 20-30 scooters there and also opened doors to lots of non-scooterists. Enjoyable although did get a little fight-y later on. Not the scootering fraternity I should make clear.
Took the missus off to her first LCGB Rally. Quiet but that wasn’t a bad thing. Got delayed leaving on Friday as a rear hub stud sheared and I needed to replace the hub. A gear change cable had gone as well. Didn’t get to Llangollen until about 8pm in the end.
There was also a German Trabant rally going on as well, just up the road in Corwen.
Llangollen is a lovely Welsh town as well.
Stopped off at Dudley Kingswinford rugby club on the way back to see Yardley & District RFC win the North Midlands Vase Plate final. An excellent weekend all round.
