Kirkby Lonsdale!

For reasons I’m not going to go into here I had to make the trip from our little Island to my old home town of Kirkby Lonsdale in Cumbria. My sister-in-law and her husband drove me there and we encountered the most horrific weather. Rain and spray so dense that we could barely see the car in front! Torrential rain as we approached Kirkby Lonsdale and our hotel for the night, The Royal. By the time we had booked in and freshened up the rain had stopped and there was even some evening sunshine allowing me the opportunity to show C&A around.

And how lovely the old town looked after all the rain. We stopped for a drink at The Sun Inn and because of a hail shower decided to stay for dinner. Thank goodness for the hail shower otherwise we’d have missed a memorable meal, what a lovely place. Drinks back at The Royal and then a pretty decent nights sleep in rather nice rooms, definitely recommended.

The restaurant on the corner is now rather disappointingly a Chinese takeaway………it’s called progress apparently

  1. You already know my opinion. Each one must takes ages, there is so much detail, I love the shop awnings, the brickwork, the light on the windows, everything. Simply stunning. Hope you both well.
