Golden Acre Park and Skipton
Golden Acre Park
The pond at Golden Acre
Lovely old church, Holy Trinity, right at the end of the High Street. Original wooden church stood on this site in the 1100's, then the stone church was built and extended in the 1300's. It was damaged in the Civil War (1642-1651) and restored in the 1650's.
On Friday night we went out to dinner at Viva, a lovely family-run Italian place near Call Lane and the river Aire. It was great, and afterwards we went to Adelphi, a very cool, traditional old pub across the river. On Saturday we went around Golden Acre and had a picnic lunch, and then in the evening we went to a cool little movie theater in Headingley to see "Made in Dagenham". It was a really great movie about the women of the Ford Dagenham factory who went on strike for pay equality with men in 1968. On Sunday we went out to Skipton and had a wander around the canals and shops. Another good weekend!
