We decided to get some new passports so that we could venture up north! The main reason for our trip was that it was Cathy's significant birthday, so we thought that we would make a few days of it. It took us about three and a half hours to get there. The site was superb, if a little open. Running beside it was the East Lancs Railway, so we were treated to steam trains regularly throughout the day.
The scenery was superb, and we will be back to the area again. We even experienced the world Black Pudding throwing competition. On the Sunday morning we took the awning down as it was so windy.
It really was good break. Cathy's party was good fun. A bit of a nightmare journey home as it was the tail end of Hurricane Katrina, so the journey back down the Motorway, was a bit of a nightmare, as caravans do not travel well in high winds
