A homegrown, humble and honest success story..

What Politician doesn't find time to associate 'emselves to summat like that.

The money he's playing with, I'm not sure Rishi might be just after borrowing a few quid!
 
High Force waterfall is pretty spectacular, especially after some rain. I believe it's open all year round.

There's a nice pub nearby too.

Bit of a trail on foot for old codgers though....

Bloody Hell Truxx , that was when he was an 'umble Mp.

HIm sure you'll recall he's Lord Hague of Richmond, aka.The Waverer nowadays, the ermine must do awful strange things to folk.

Rishi's had the gig since '15 (and doing rather well for himself, too)
 
You’re in my neck of the woods.


And of course you should head just a little further west and have lunch at the George & Dragon in Clifton. I hear it’s very good. ;)

The young girl responsible has already been sacked and we’ve evicted her family from their tenant farm just to make a point.

I trust this meets with your satisfaction.

The Silver Clockwork Swan, long ago technology but not a silicon chip used.

I visited a dozen years ago. It's very, very old. They only operate it once daily so as not to wear it out or break it. Check timings.

Keep your eyes open for Dominic Cummings and his family around Barnard Castle.

But steer clear of them on the road, because apparently the myopic lot are out conducting driving tests.

Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle - Art and shit.
Antiques shops in Barnard Castle.
The castle itself in Barnard Castle.
Eden Valley Railway at Warcop - Old trains and shit.
Railway museum at Kirkby Stephen - more old trains and shit.
High Cup Nick - a bit off the beaten track, probably not accessible for the oldies. Nice views if you can make it up there.
Brough (Pronounced “Bruff”) Castle.

Warcop Station where I collected the papers from a stream train. Trundled hand cart to Mrs Piggs shop all before going to skule.
From Brough (Bruff) Castle you can see Fox Tower.
Warcop may pole, my initials at the top since 1953.

If you go at the right time of year you can enjoy the Appleby Horse Fair, the biggest annual meeting of Gypsies and Travellers in Europe, maybe the world.
