We started off the day in Christ church Sowerby Bridge, meeting my friends at the weekly coffee morning. The font was used to baptise many generations of babies in our family, and the altar was the scene of many of my ancestors’ weddings. Then it was off to meet Jean and John from Sowerby who took us up to the hills above Elland to a farm shop that has a cafe with an amazing view. Then to walk off our lunch we had a stroll along the dam at Baitings reservoir near Ripponden. It was windy and raining but us Yorkshire folk are tough!
