Grassington. This is one of the Dales best loved
villages with its diminutive cobbled square and
interesting little alleyways.

Our first stop this morning is the small
village of Kilburn, under the famous White
Horse. This village is the home of Mousey
Thompson and its visitor centre where the
famous woodworker renowned for his hand
carved oak furniture throughout the land is
based. The day continues via Byland Abbey and
Ampleforth to Helmsley, where we take a break
and have time to obtain lunch or you may well
wish to visit to the cheese shop or the Helmsley
Walled Garden. Just around the corner from the
garden is Ryeburn of Helmsley, purveyors of
award winning ice creams and serving just about
the best ice cream you will ever taste. Leaving
Helmsley we make for Thirsk and visit ‘The
World of James Herriot’, a fascinating tour,
