View from the side of the road, looking over the moors...snow as far as the eye could see! Luckily, the road although a bit desolate, is a well used bus route, so is well gritted and clear.
Thank goodness I wrapped up warm in my bargain £5 faux fur coat and ear muffs, brrr!
Back down in the valley again, and no snow in Hebden Bridge itself. This is the pub that we went for lunch in, yum :)
And the bridge over the river in the village centre
There are lots of lovely shops filled with original craft and design from Independent designe/makers - like in the Arts Centre
I really loved this shop - The Yorkshire Soap Co. The lady in the shop kindly let me take a few photos inside. It smelt divine, everything is handmade and it was so beautifully presented. A lot of the soaps were made to look like cakes....
Yum! (Or not!) I treated myself to a strawberry cheesecake soap, and had a gift set made up for a friend's birthday present.
Good enough to eat...almost....
Michael took his camera and got some photos, and then we headed back home - once again through the winter wonderland....
Stunning - but freezing!!
We didn't leave Hebden Bridge empty handed of course, after paying a visit to a yummy looking old fashioned bakery on the way back to the car.....
Jam sponge slice and a cup of tea when we got in. This was SO yummy!
I also picked up a few bargains in some of the 6 Charity shops in the village (Yes, I did print out a Google Map of them all before we went so we didn't miss any!)
Retro flask, never been used £1.50 from Oxfam.
Think they sell these in Urban Outfitters for about £15 so I got a bargain!
Lonely Vintage Glass - to add to our collection, 50p from Greyhound Rescue
And soft black leather bow peep toe mini wedges (as new) £2.99, Oxfam
We really enjoyed our day out, but think next time we go - we'll wait until the weather is a bit nicer as it was rather harsh today!
