JUMPING ON the wrong train two weeks ago, we enjoyed our unexpected Bolton Abbey
trip so much that today we’re off again to walk the same route. Today we knowingly
board the Morecambe train and we’re interested to hear that since Christmas this
route terminates at Heysham Port so this would be an easy way of getting to the Isle
of Man via the Steam Packet Company ferry.
That would make an appealing trip as I’d be able to draw rather than drive on the
The Palm Court, established 1880, in the Victorian Arcade, Ilkley.

Christmas Cottage, Main Street, Addingham, drawn at 2.15 pm as we stopped for a pot
of tea at the Fleece. As I was working quickly I decided to put in the main shapes
- the facade and window openings - first, rather than construct the drawing detail
by detail as I normally do. I ended up with an unusually wobbly drawing!
