I think there were more jolly cyclists than farmers.
As mentioned previously, during our stay in Yorkshire we did a considerable amount of walking and one of the joys was coming across the village pub. This is one of the first pubs we visited during our five week stay in Yorkshire. The pub is closed in this photo but when we visited it it was during the weekend and the pub was alive with patrons. The menu served was excellent and there were several cyclists making use of this excellent facility.
We didn’t enter this pub on our walk we merely took a photo for our next door neighbour who has the surname Hutton.
The Blacksmith’s Arms was fairly close to where we were staying so we called in there a couple of times. The food was excellent as was the friendly staff.
This next pub is one that was closest to our stay but unfortunately for us it had been closed down.
We seemed to be able to pick when the pubs were closed rather than open on our walks.
We walked quite some distance to visit the next pub only to discover that it was closed until the weekend.
It had a reputation for excellent fare but unfortunately we were unable to verify that. On our return to our accommodation we saw a glider making a landing in a nearby field. I don’t think it was where they were meant to be landing but the made it safely.
The Stone Trough was close to the half way mark of a long walk we had done so we stopped for our beer and cider. The drinks were not up to the usual standard and so we didn’t linger for lunch but returned to the Blacksmith’s Arms where we knew the food and drink was excellent.
The Middleton Arms we visited on a Sunday. The pub was open and very busy as there had been a christening at the local church followed by a celebration at the pub.
The last pub we visited was on our final night in Yorkshire before heading to France for five weeks.
The Fox and Hounds, ( How many of those are there in the UK? ), provided an excellent venue to watch one of the matches of the Rugby World Cup.
This sounds as though we were constantly in pubs but we weren’t they just happened to be there when we went for walks. Not all of our walks had a pub!
