Yorkshire days at Bolton Abbey and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park

I spent a few days wandering around the Yorkshire Dales, it is such a beautiful and interesting landscape. This is a reservoir we passed, it is close to Haworth – home of the Bronte sisters.  It was so peaceful, I could have stayed there for hours

This is the approach to Bolton Abbey and the ruins of the Abbey

I couldn’t resist this view taken through one of the Abbey doors

I love old graveyards and found some interesting grave markers, this one looks as though it was re-built from the old stone marker.

The church has the most interesting door furniture too

I was staying a couple of miles away from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park which has several Henry Moore sculptures. My friend Julie had her camera out 🙂

The Park is huge and has lots of sculptures including one called the HAHA Bridge.  This is interesting, both sides of the bridge say haha but the lettering on one side is in negative lettering.  I had never noticed that before

I loved my time away but am glad to be back home with my hooligans
