Gargrave

With the heavy rain today as forecast we opted for a stay at home day.  No point in getting wet if we don’t need to.  The elderly couple on Nb Waterwych II have stayed put as well so weather permitting we’ll head for Skipton tomorrow.

Lovely photos, Gargrave is very nice, the church was the only one to survive when the Scots invaded and killed everyone in the town. St Andrews you see!
Gargrave isnt a bad place to be stuck while you wait for the weather to improve.
