A trip out in the car today with Siobhan, my support worker, to one of our favourite nearby towns.
En route to Beverley we called at two pretty villages; first of all South Cave. We've passed through here on the main road before but had not previously been down to visit the church...and it's a lovely spot.
We also walked up the driveway to have a look at Cave Castle, which is now used as a golf club and conference centre.
The next village we visited was Brantingham, picturesquely situated right at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds. We sat and ate our sandwiches on one of the seats located on the village green next to the duck pond; unfortunately I couldn't take any photographs because of some roadworks spoiling the view. We did go for a walk round the village though and I found plenty of other things to point my camera at.
We then got back in the car and drove up the hill to the church, which is a few hundred yards away in Brantingham Dale.
We continued on to Beverley by the shortest route...where I spent quite a lot of money in one of the charity shops; I bought two practically new pairs of comfy shoes, two shirts, a pair of trousers and a fleece.
On our way back to Doncaster we called at a place we'd been to before for tea and cakes, Drewton's Farm Shop, but discovered that it had gone all upmarket and was now charging £12.50 each for afternoon tea. We didn't stay and called in at the cafe at The California Gardens Garden Centre at Howden. Our treat of tea and cakes was perfectly adequate.
