ducks at East Riddleston Hall, Keighley
we drove around today and visited a nearby historic house, but it was closed so we watched the kids feed the ducks.
The nearby town of Haworth is where the Bronte sisters lived.
"Oh Heathcliffe, it's me Cathy, I've come home, Let me into your window."

Bronte House from the field
"Smell the heather. Heathcliff - fill my arms with heather. All they can hold. Come on."
This shop is an anachronism of antique reproductions and tourists gifts and nick nacks but it is beautiful just the same. It uses alot of the authentic structure and fittings as display, but makes no pretense that it's not a tourists shop. It's entertaining to look at. I found myself trying to find something I could buy as a vote of approval. I settled on post cards.
