First to see Castle Howard, then across to Eileen & David with a trip on the Settle to Carlisle railway line before heading for home via Liverpool's Tate at the Albert Dock to see the latest Pablo Picasso exhibition.

Such busy days travelling with so much to see around the North of England. The beauty of the scenic railway journey along the line over Ripplehead Viaduct will be a memory forever.

First to see where Brideshead Revisited was made and is still helping the restoration of such a fine structure and gardens. Statuary, layout and furniture is not a patch on that famous house with fountains in Derbyshire.

Over the Pennines to visit and stay a couple of nights with Eileen and David in Hest Bank. The trip was made extra special by a decision to do the Settle  to Carlisle rayway journey in the footsteps of Michael Portillo. The countryside was truely spectacular and the chance to see the Ripplehead Viaduct from the rear of the train was a treat beyond my dreams of this journey.


The conclude our whistle-stop trip we visited a local gastro-pub by David and Eileen's relaxing canels then popped in to the Tate at Liverpool to see the latest UK Picasso exhibition - on the way home.
