Here I was, thinking yesterday's post about Harewood House was going to be my last "proper" Yorkshire Holiday post for this year - and this morning, I found that I had completely forgotten about the "one last walk" I took in the late afternoon before our departure!
As you know, I particularly like that time of day for its mellow light and generally more relaxed atmosphere (although I like busy market mornings, too).
I had not really been along Ripon Canal yet this holiday, so this was my last chance to go.
A good way to access the path along the canal is via Littlethorpe, and so that's the way I went. Littlethorpe's former school house has long been turned into a private home. It is one of the most charming houses I know:
Church at Littlethorpe:
A grassy path! You know how much I like them, don't you!
Here, the canal looks more like a river. But the actual river runs parallel to it and can't be seen from where I was.
Almost back in town now:
As usual, Ripon Cathedral is never far away:
Now this really was my last "proper" post about this year's Yorkshire Holiday. I still have a lot to tell and show you, but less in a chronological way and more sorted into topics. I hope you enjoyed this last walk in/around Ripon with me as much as I did!
