I'm quite behind at the moment telling you about the days out we've had just lately so I shall be trying to catch up.
Two weeks ago, it was Bank Holiday Monday. The weather forecast for West Yorkshire wasn't very good, but North Yorkshire looked better so we decided on a trip to Helmsley.
Helmsley is a market town and it's a lovely place to have a wander round. There's lots of little independent shops which are great for browsing.
I'd have liked to have had a look in these craft barns but they were all closed, what a shame.
There's a walled garden in Helmsley which I've been wanting to visit for a while, but Eleanor wasn't very keen so we decided to leave that for another day. We did go in to the nursery though.
Outside the walled garden are some gardens which have been planted up by children from local schools.
Don't the sweet peas look beautiful?
You can see Helmsley Castle from the town but I've never been in, that's somewhere else for my list of places to visit, it gets longer by the day.
We passed a happy couple of hours ambling around Helmsley, it's such a pretty little town.
I'll tell you more about our day next time.
