Our annual social trip was a great success yet again, with the weather behaving itself - no umbrellas needed thankfully.
The coach took us to Bolton Abbey railway station where, after a welcome drink, we boarded the steam train to Embsay station enjoying a leisurely ride through fields of sheep and cows. After a peruse round the station and gift shop the coach took us to Bolton Abbey where packed and café lunches were consumed.
We were given ample time to wander round the grounds, cross the river on stepping stones, or just enjoy the spectacular buildings. Some of the group even gate crashed a wedding to add their voices to the last hymn!!
The coach then travelled to Skipton for a couple of hours shopping, sight seeing, enjoying a coffee at the church or a drink in one of the local hostelries. A smooth ride home left us all tired but with good memories of enjoyable company and sights seen. Roll on the 2017 trip.
