And then Easby Abbey did what all old buildings do, caught me up in the puzzle of trying to work out what, where, who and why? I think I am going to have to buy the book! I love the atmosphere here. It’s very easy and casual. In the summer people come for picnics, but today women were chatting on the benches, their children running around laughing and shouting. Other visitors like myself wandered through the ruins and archways engrossed in history. Lovely.
(Toffee fudge and chocolate if you are wondering, and no, it isn't falling off, there is just soooo much icecream. Delicious)
Here's a little route map of my travels. Only 3.4 miles, and it took me nearly 3 hours!
After all that, my walking wasn't finished. I'll have to do another post to cover the rest of the day.
