St. John's day trip to Yorkshire, summer 2011 (Part1)

After a picturesque drive with, a short comfort break en route, our first scheduled stop was the beautiful village of Haworth.

Our lovely coach driver Dave, dropped us in Haworth station Car Park. Dave had a beautiful coach of which he was justly proud. He was a fantastic driver and confessed to having lived in Birkdale as a child and attended the St. John's Sunday School - an undisclosed number of years ago!

On leaving the coach, in Haworth Station car park, we walked up ....

....and up until we finally reached Haworth Main Street!

The village was beautiful.

Most people availed themselves of one of the many delightful pubs and caf├ęs for at least a cup of tea! In Haworth the traditional Yorkshire weather was like the traditional Yorkshire tea - hot and wet!

Another much visited location was Rose & Co. Apothecary from which many a tin of Zam-Buk was brought back to the coach.

Other places of interest to visit were the Bronte Parsonage and the Bronte Memorial Chapel inside St Michael and All Angels (the Haworth parish church).

We had been told that "our train to Keighley leaves at 12.36" and been exhorted not to miss it as there wouldn't be another train for 2 hours!

Fortunately, the walk back to the station was down hill all the way; thus we all congregated at Haworth Station in good time to meet our train.
