Just spent a lovely birthday weekend in North Yorkshire. As members of English Heritage we can visit some of our old buildings and wonder at the ingenuity of our ancestors. How did they manage to construct such things as Scarborough and Pickering Castles and Whitby Abbey, huge and expensive buildings. We enjoyed the tour, had the best fish and chips in The Magpie in Whitby and stayed at a wonderful B&B “The Horseshoe Inn" in Levisham. Nothing better than Yorkshire in the Spring and in the evening on a clear night we saw the International Space Station as it passed overhead.
