Yorkshire Day

This morning’s Thought for the Day informed me that today, August 1st, is Yorkshire Day. Famous for tea, cricket, plain speaking and grit, this county is where I am heading tomorrow with my trusty walking friend, Helen. We are walking the Cleveland Way, which is shaped like a bass clef, starting in Helmsley and then crossing hill, moor and dale till we reach the coast at Saltburn by the sea. From there we keep the sea on our left and keep walking to Filey. Taking several days to do it. This walk was inspired by someone I follow on Instagram -@bexbromwich – who did it early this year and posted glorious and atmospheric pictures. I’ll hold her responsible if it doesn’t deliver. But my experience of Yorkshire folk is that they do deliver, in spades, and so doubtless will the county that spawned them. I’m looking forward to all of it, the tea most of all as H has bought a stove,  even the grit and plain speaking. (You can keep the cricket.)
