The morning found us travelling through the Yorkshire Moors, first we climbed up through some beautiful farming country, green fields bordered by the stone walls that are everywhere in England. Then to the moors, I was beginning to think there weren't any when suddenly they were laid out in front of us.
Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Gardens are spectacular. The abbey ruins are the largest monastic ruins in the country. The river Skell runs under the abbey and we walked up the side of it through the gardens.
Night stop over near Sherwood forest in a 16th Century cottage (Brecks Cottage).
