The Quest Continues
Had the chance of getting out for a decent ride today, so the plan was to head for the village of Ramsden located north west from home, a village I have never visited before.

I have always considered it a given fact that England has the thatched rooves, the quaint country lanes, the cool stone buildings, the funny place-names, the ancient history, etc. But never before, until now, have I ever seen the civilized grazing grounds your country provides for its cows. Thumbs UP!
Greg, that is the exception to the rule, most of the pastures are pretty wet and muddy due to the recent rains.
That pasture looks more like parkland than farm land.
I’ve been to Europe a few times and the Middle East once, but have never made it to England. Thanks for sharing your journey.
Laura, its a pleasure.
Guess you needed to be towing along a kayak for portions of the journey. I love the texture in the stone roof, but the building looks like it would be cold in winter. Thank you for the thatch quotient for the week, too!
Em, yeah its been pretty wet the last weekend, there’s not much river traffic at the moment due to the speed of the current.
Not sure how warm those style of buildings are in winter, but like the one in the photo they have been there a few hundred years.
Yes, I look at all those very old buildings and just shiver! How did they do it back then?! I huddle in one room all winter to keep my heating bills down – could you imagine trying to keep a space that big, with ceilings that high, warm?
Yes, a bit different now with central heating and cavity wall insulation.
Must have had big wood piles.
Very nice, David. The latest (???) season of “Last Tango in Halifax” is currently showing on our local public broadcasting station, and I always look in the background for you cycling on those lovely country lanes.
Sadly Bill you look in vain, Halifax is probably close to a couple of hundred miles from here, not likely to be Questing up there.
Well, that’s the end of that, then. No more episodes for me! Besides, Celia was really beginning to annoy me. 😉
You shouldn’t let that put you off watching, though it’s a bit of an odd accent, granted.
Nice ride — always enjoy the photos — very different from here.
The thatched roofs remain fascinating.
Rich, thanks there is plenty more out there.
