Linton Falls – Fantastic Local Attraction – Linton

After a not very filling meal at Grassington House, we headed to the wonderful Forester’s Arms where we enjoyed a single pint, well I did anyway, being ever fearful of the next days’ cycling. Once we had drunk enough sugary liquid calories and yeast water (cider and beer), we headed to Linton Falls, which is a popular attraction in Grassington / Linton. The popularity of the waterfall is no doubt due to it being an easy stroll from the National Park car park in Grassington. A footbridge leading from Grassington to Linton spans the fall. It is the fourth...

Grassington House – Triumphant Feast Grassington

Oh me oh my, this was probably the best meal on the Way of the Roses trip. We arrived to the Craiglands hotel in Grassington, unpacked and cleaned up then headed to dinner. Our fellow guests were shocked that we were eating there, as it seems to have a reputation for exorbitant costs. The costs were certainly close to budget but not excessive I found. Portion size could be described as minimalist but certainly the flavour is concentrated in each beautiful morsel! Grassington House? I didn’t know we were staying with millionaires! We skipped the starter to concentrate on...

The New Inn – Clapham – Terrific Mid Ride Meal

The New Inn – Clapham – Terrific Mid Ride Meal

Prior to an astonishing hill coming out of Settle, we ate a lovely lunch at the New Inn in Clapham, in the Craven district of North Yorkshire. The lunch itself was high quality and we were very grateful to the staff at the New Inn for letting us faff about with our bikes before the huge hill out of Settle. For a combination of the above reasons I must recommend this charming place. The Ploughman’s lunch was absolutely lovely but a little too ambitious for us. We were cycling machines at this point and had had a fulsome breakfast...

5 Favourites – July 2021

Those in close contact with me will be aware that I am squarely in Africa musically. I have been there for some weeks and am having trouble leaving the Lagos rabbit hole but I shall endeavour to provide a wider ambit of beautiful covers. Some of these will of course reflect where I am musically at the moment but I will make a special effort to cover a range of covers. Fela Kuti – J.J.D – Johnny Just Drop – 1977 In his lyric for ‘J.J.D. (Johnny Just Drop)’, Kuti lampooned Nigeria’s “been-tos,” people who had been to Europe...

Tremors – Fun Silly Nonsense Film 1990

Let it be known that I adore Kevin Bacon. This film is perhaps not his best (Footloose might qualify), but it is the only one which he has watched again, according to the man himself. This film follows the story of handymen Val (Bacon) and Earl (Fred Ward) who find themselves embroiled in an extra terrestrial – or should it be sub terrestrial – attack on a town called Perfection. The ridiculousness is almost unpalatable at times but the film is overall a funny, accessible treat which I recommend. Unsuspecting handymen Val and Earl pass though a sleepy, dusty...
