Trip to Yorkshire

Last weekend involved a pleasant day out in Yorkshire, so Darren could pick up his shiny new car (it's a VW Polo GTi, for those who care). Whilst we were there, we visited Mother Shipton's Cave (or Mrs Miggins' Pie Shop, as we called it) to see the Petrifying Wall and marvel at the extortionate entry fee (£5.75!). We also had a wander about Knaresborough, which is a pleasant town with a surprisingly large number of shops. Rob also had the pleasure to discover that nowhere in Knaresborough does any shopkeeper know how to use an apostrophe correctly.
After that we carried on to try out a Maize Maze (and yet more splashing of cash). We didn't do it properly - we didn't read the leaflet due to it being in Darren's pocket (d'oh), but it was fun nonetheless.
Finally, we came home to Wilmslow to grab a curry at Barinda, and have a few pints at the Oakwood. All in all, a good day out. Some photos taken on my phone are on Flickr, as usual.
