We have been on a few Land Rover Driving Experience Days over the last few years, and they are held in some wonderful locations. In June 2018 we attended one near Skipton in Yorkshire, deciding to take our motor home, we picked a site near Bolton Abbey. Behind the site we found a wonderful walk in Strid Wood, we were lucky, the afternoon we arrived was beautiful, the next day would be a different story.
As we were walking looking at the views, there was was one that was glorious, in fact I really couldn’t capture how beautiful it was with my camera, but Turner did with paints. JMW Turner visited the area many times in his 30 years association with Yorkshire, and over the 30 years produced a series of water colour paintings, including The View of Barden Tower, which you can see in the distance in my photos. This Medieval Hunting Lodge was rebuilt in the 15th century by the Clifford family of Skipton Castle.
The next day I managed a closer photo of the Tower, but we didn’t have time to stop, maybe next time. I will post the venue for the Landrover Experience next, mainly because we are going on another one at the start of April 2019 in Scotland…..just not sure where the time goes 🙂
