Bolton Abbey

It was a rare occasion that just me, Dave and Pip ventured forth on a journey and our destination was this place.  I had wanted to visit here for some time and we were not disappointed:

Pip collected a Pip sized fallen branch that made an ideal walking stick.

A happy day was had by one and all!
