Winter in Northern England

We are now in the final week of our stay in Ilkley in Northern England and will be back in Ohio on February 12. We have been here since just before New Year (see previous Post) and have been following our usual routine when we stay in Ilkley – walks across the moors, almost daily shopping, meals with friends and family and enjoying the restaurants here in town. The weather has been cool (probably between 30 and 40F all the time) and there have been several snowfalls. Generally these have been mild enough that they haven’t interfered with our daily life, although some walks on the higher ground have been quite exciting at times. For the most part, however, the snow has added another dimension to the already beautiful scenery and has created some stunning views from the apartment and on some of the drives we have taken. We hope the few pictures included here give that impression.

We still have a few more days before we leave – including celebration of Molly’s Birthday at a rather swish restaurant this weekend. Then it’s back to see what the winter is like in Ohio.

Ingleborough Mountain. Only 2400 feet but a predominant Yorkshire feature at any time of the year.
