The pictures should say it all, fresh air, no shops, no sales, no internet, no crowds,no television; just the beautiful countryside.

Every year on Boxing Day, after a short service, hundreds of pilgrims walk from Ripon Cathedral to Fountains Abbey, Studley Royal, just as the pilgrim monks did in1132; what better thing to do but join them?

Our Christmas presents to each other were to renew our NT membership and get out and about more across Yorkshire in the new year, so lets start on our own doorstep at this amazing place.
