It was a nice day yesterday so I went a walk. Drove to Snaith, parked and did a nine mile circular walk taking in Carlton and Camblesforth. I had often seen signs for Carlton Towers, but never had time to stop and take a look. Walking through the big iron gates and down the long drive with sheep grazing nearby, this stunning building put a big smile on my face. WOW, oh chuffin WOW.
It's a Grade 1 listed Victorian Gothic house, and stands in a 250 acre estate. I took lots of photo's and always reject the worst of them, but there was hardly a bad one among these, that's why there are a lot of them.

I waited a few minutes until they were all behind the hedge and off I went, picking my way between muddy puddles. A few minutes later the farmer caught me up and stopped at the gate of the next field where there was another gang of hungry cows waiting for their nosh. I was all set to go in when the friendly farmer chappie decided to escort me across the field. The cows followed us to the other side. I have come across this situation many times before, nine times out of ten there is nothing to worry about. Each situation needs to be assessed for safety. Mostly cows are just curious, they follow you because they are interested. If you turn around to face them they stop dead in their tracks. Keep calm, walk away from them, do not run or you might stumble and fall over. I love cows. Thank you Mr Farmer.
