So for the folk going to Darlington show earlier than show day. As this years show is based at Ripon if you are there on the Thursday the market in Ripon is canny for a visit. It's not too far to walk from the race course. Nice pie stall.
Other outings close to Ripon where you can take dogs and worth a visit. For those of you who are NT members there's Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Park. You also can take a nice leisurely stroll around Thorp Perow Aboretum which is on the Ripon to Bedale road. Good for the dogs to run around. So expect to see some of you at Darlington, The Makems
Thank you Derek I just love Ripon and the Yorkshire Dales, many moons ago we lived in a hamlet near Boroughbridge. If it wasn't for family commitments we would move back to the area.
