Tues. 14th Sept 2010
The following 3 images are from an old video I took in January 1998 ,the images are very poor because they're still frames captured on an old cathode ray monitor, but here lies a little story about the old moorland barn shown in these crude images.It was bought and transformed into a lovely cosy home by Frank and Janice two of our friends and it's become the destination for a great day out every year since the spring of 2000. The barn is located on the edge of the moors above Swale Dale in the Yorkshire Dales.
Lets now move forward in time 12 years to last Saturday 11th Sept 2010 for another weekend up at Frank & Janice's lovely barn.We( that's Audrey and myself) arrived Friday evening with Pat and Joe (Janice's cousin) for 2 days, the rest of our friends arrive early Sunday morning.
In previous years our visits have always been in May or June when the countryside is at its best but this year because of various commitments early Sept was the first date date when most of our friends could get together
Janice and Frank love the great outdoors and Janice is passionate about wild flowers and through the years they have made their garden into a wildlife haven.
Below the meadow the shelter of the maturing woodland is home for several nesting birds throughout the season and a Wood Pigeon is still sitting on eggs
