A Yorkshire adventure – first stop Todmorden

We are off again in Luci this time to the East Yorkshire coast.

Our first stop is Todmorden in West Yorkshire. We are booked in for one night at the cricket club which is a CL site for the Caravan and Motorhome Club. No facilities but handy for the town.

It’s sunny and warm when we arrive so we enjoy lunch outside.

Todmorden is a lovely spot where three rivers meet and it sits at the bottom of steep sided valleys. Lots of regular flooding here so there’s a strange management of the rivers in the centre! It’s also known for its daily market but we happen to be here on the only half day.

We really like the look of the place with its yellow stone buildings, canal and railway bridge.

It also has a fabulous looking Unitarian church which we wander around but sadly can’t get into. It’s made more interesting by Tony spotting a grave of a woman from West Dingle, Liverpool. The Dingle is where I was brought up!

A tour of some the local pubs and a very tasty takeaway curry to end a good first day.
