24 August 2017 – Trip to Grange-over-Sands
Grange-over-Sands was renamed in the late 19th or early 20th century by the local vicar, who was fed up with his post going to Grange in Borrowdale. However, in our opinion it should be renamed Gays-over-Sands or Hebden Bridge by the Sea!
We enjoyed our lunch time meals at the Hazelmere Cafe so we came back at the end of the trip for coffee and cakes. We were a bit disappointed that there was a limited choice as most of the cakes had been sold out.
The clean sea air and beautiful sunny day enhanced our visit. We chatted to a local woman with two dogs who showed us around and asked about the Big Pride Weekend in Manchester.
Whilst we were in the Roman Catholic church, someone (no names mentioned) let out the loudest fart (Number 5 on the Richter Scale). I don’t think Peter heard it as he was two churches further up the road.
