Though it was built in the 17th century, a large section of the Cathedral was rebuilt by Christopher Wren in 1666 after it burnt down in The Great Fire of London! However the Cathedral survived through The Blitz even when enemy bombers tried to target and destroy it.
Today Matty and I took a well earned rest from the hustle and bustle of the M1 and went to Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The park is a Country Estate which can be found in Bretton in West Yorkshire.
It is a beautiful place with the countryside and art sculptures, but also a place where Mum and Dad can have some lovely peace and quiet! The huge park stretches over 500 acres of countryside which was easy for us, but could you walk all around the entire park yourself?
Today Lily and I drove through the small town of Holmfirth in West Yorkshire on our way to Manchester.
Holmfirth holds various events throughout the year such as Holmfirth Food and Drink festival and Holmfirth Folk Festival. If you are hungry, the town is where Longley’s dairy products are made, products such as yoghurts, cheese, cream and ice cream.
In the centre of Holmfirth on a warm and sunny, or cold and rainy, day you can visit the Longley’s Ice Cream parlour which offer lots of different flavours of freshly made ice cream! They looked delicious, what flavour ice cream would you have?
