Saltaire and Calverley

Goats and graves

This morning we went out to Saltaire again, the model city planned by Sir Titus Salt for his mill workers and their families. They've finished the construction over at the park, and it was really nice! On the way home, we stopped in Calverley for a Sunday Roast. It was really good, and they did this surprisingly delicious veg dish of mashed carrots & parsnips. After lunch, we walked around this gorgeous old church, St Wilfrid (the oldest parts of the building are from 1154, newest parts are from restoration in the 1800's). As you can see, parts of the graveyard are sectioned off and the "landscaping" around the older, more fragile stones is done by goats and sheep. Isn't that brilliant?!
