Weather warm and close again but did not look too threatening so drove to Knaresborough. I have been there once before and was fascinated. It is a bit like like Bridgnorth with a high level and a low level. The town and the castle are on the high level with brilliant views over the river.
Next I went to Ripley which is a pretty little village just outside Harrogate with some nice houses and a castle. I think it looked as if it was (and probably still is) a prosperous village. Apparently the castle was built in the 15th century and has always been the home of the Ingilsby family. The village has several listed buildings.
I am Jenny (when I was little my dad always called me Jenny Wren) and I enjoy making hand crafted things. Watch this space to see what I am working on.
