Sunday 17 July 2016

Today we are booked into a pub for Sunday lunch in Fence which is in Lancashire, so it is a trip over the hills.  The area is known as Craven and everywhere seems to have a Craven Heifer pub!

The story of the original Craven Heifer is told by wikipedia:

She visited London – a journey which took 73 days as she was shown off at numerous places on the way.  Travel by rail really did change things when it came along.

The origination of the name Craven is also available:

Our destination is the White Swan.

Being Sunday it was nice to have lunch.  The cheeseboard was amazing.

The weather has cheered up immensely by the time we head back and the sun is shining so we can have the top down on the TT.  Return by a slightly different route for a little variety but either way we miss Skipton thanks to the newish bypass – which we continue to do for the rest of the week.
