Scintillating Skipton

By LynneJoyce  
15 images from my day out in Scintillating Skipton on Monday with my friend Liz (V8). There are a few shots of the town centre but most were taken on the enchanting Skipton Castle Walk, a delightful walk that is paradise for both dog walkers and photographers.

Skipton is a very popular venue for Wrinklies like myself but most of them arrive by coach and their target is the market that you can see in V9. If you are a market aficionado you will love Skipton market. It is on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. You can buy anything from vegetables to telescopes there, and in between taking photos I bought myself three new outfits for my holiday in Portugal with Isabel.

I had to include a shot of Liz's enchanting dog Fred (V10). He manages the charm everybody and has a bigger fan club than Ansel. He and Ansel feature as minor players in some of the other shots.

As ever the exif applies only to the first shot. Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of these images.

Never been in Skipton in my life Lynne but I now feel as if I know it a little.

As ever a story line worth following in your photographs.

We were there a couple of years ago, but the weather wasn't so nice, still enjoyed the castle walk though.

Close thing between V7 and V10 - both delightful as is the castle and the wild garlic walkways.
Been to Skipton with my late hubby and passed through en route to Haworth.

A good few years since I visited Skipton - looking back at my images, on 08/08/2007, to be exact! It's certainly a very delightful town, and a visit to the beautiful Castle is a must. It's a lovely walk too along the canal side from where the boat trips go, by the Leeds and Liverpool canal, all the way up and around the back of the Castle, as you've shown us here. And when that's worked up an appetite, there are one or two very good pubs on the High Street! A fine set here, nice to see it again through your images 👍

The way you framed this is really helpful.My wife and I (who was born in Leeds) have visited Skipton several times, but unfortunately did not visit this castle. Maybe next time...

Gorgeous series, The town where I grew up, brought back many memories, We used to go dancing on Saturday nights at the Black Horse, in the first version and I used to work on Saturdays and school holidays at that chocolate shop in version nine, We also spent a lot of time and borrowed a lot of books from the library in version five, many years ago. I've not been back for quite a few years. Thank you.
