Sedbergh – Day 1

A long drive from Wiltshire to Yorkshire hampered as always by Dad’s annoyingly slow driving and motorway congestion.  Stopped for lunch at a Toby in Worcester where  the carvery was as acceptable as usual.

Staying in part of an old railway station much to Dad’s delight.  Cottage seems very comfortable and Dad can step outside onto the old platform and pretend that he is a Station Master.

Drove into Sedbergh to eat and discovered that it calls itself “England’s Book Town” and claims to have more second hand bookshops than Birmingham – although if true this would seem to say more about Birmingham than Sedbergh!  Mum swore that she hadn’t been aware of this when booking the holiday, but the rest of the family were sceptical.

For dinner we tried the “Al Forno” where are meals were mixed.
