Another little gem
That was a nice drive into the Yorkshire Dales.
We had previously bought some hot smoked salmon from Booths from a local smoke house and decided to see if we could find it. We knew that Bleiker's in Glasshouses wasn't the one and decided to try Mackenzies Smokehouse in Blubberhouses. What a find.
We're always on the look out for places to take visitors and we've found another. All their smoked products and a lot more are sold in the shop at the front and at the back there is a great looking restaurant. Being the middle of the afternoon we'd already eaten but found room for a cup of tea and scone with jam and cream. Excellent.
Having passed them on the way there, the 'golf balls' at Menwith Hill have always fascinated and somewhat spooked me. The shot above was taken from quite a long way away on a different route back. It seems so out of place in this beautiful dales setting but also strangely magnificent.
