A look at Leyburn.

The landscape is very beautiful. Driving around the Yorkshire Dales is a pleasure. I take my time, no need to rush. It was a windy and misty day, so the horizon faded away into the distance. 

Leyburn is a place I used to drive through when on my way to a quarry, to deliver 26 ton of cement. I always wanted to stay there, but of course I couldn't I had a job to do and had to get back for the next load. A lot of places in the UK have memories for me, all associated with lorry driving. Now it's nice to visit in a car when I can come and go as I like. No one telling me to hurry up, they are waiting for the load, or asking what time will I be back. 
I found a parking place opposite the Livestock Market. A piece of waste ground, put a few coins in the honesty box. Then I walked into the town. A look at the Railway Station. It's very quiet, no one about. 

I didn't take a photo of the outside of the church. Here are a couple that I took inside. Here is some information about the church

There was a Travelling Fair which took up most of the town centre square. I've had several jobs where I drove an ERF, including one just like this. My favourite truck at the time. 

This is a fairly modern truck for a Fairground to have. Next to it, another ERF. 
And the good old Foden. With a lot of love and attention, these can go on forever. 
The smell of chips came wafting by and I couldn't resist buying a portion. I took them back to my car. Loverly. 
Time to move on. Where to next. I want to see a waterfall. 
Catch you soon with some waterfall pictures. Toodle pip.   ilona
