Todmorden

Arriving in Yorkshire, grey and rainy, the first photo is of Mytholmroyd, a completely unpronounceable name, known by me for the fact that Sylvia Plath is buried near at Heptonstall, well their festival was not going too well, just a sea of umbrellas.   Then through Hebden Bridge, a bit like Glastonbury very hippy and incense shops, and finally we arrived at Edible Todmorden where my family live.  The news was not particularly good, my son-in-law had just been taken to the hospital  the day before with either a suspected heart attack or an embolism, but seems to be coping well.
On sunday we wandered round the town with the children through a lively market and down by the river.  My daughter runs two charity shops for discarded greyhounds, the shelter has about 100 of them but the person who runs the charity, is thinking of moving to Doncaster create a bigger shelter, with other animals, including shire horses and a restaurant. 
LS is busily working in the bathroom, so I feel rather redundant, we should be going out later today to look at houses, this is our plan to eventually arrive at a place to settle, if it will work out I don't know........

This is Todmorden's Council
building, to the left is the River Calder, I think, but the centre of the building defines the boundary line between Lancashire and Yorkshire

Just happen to like the way the geese took off.

  1. My son used to live in Halifax so I know this area a bit. Like Hebden Bridge but it is so hilly that getting about must be quite hard work, particularly if you live at the top of a hill. Hope you look a
    little further afield and move towards the Dales, then we could meet for coffee now and then.
    Hope all is well with your son in law.

    1. Hi Pat, we have been out today looking at areas, Kirbymoorside and Thornton Le Dale, very pretty both places, shall put some photos on tomorrow, don't know where you live in the Dales by the way. Darron is at the Halifax hospital, I actually don't like the thought of all the big towns on the West side of Yorkshire.

    1. Hi John, thank you for your wishes, he is getting very grumbly in hospital, bad food, doesn't like the company, etc but it is a big shock for him. We are all still waiting for a diagnosis.
