Rob and I were at a bit of a loose end this weekend, but rather than doing something we always do (wandering around York, sitting in our local coffee shop, watching films and going to Ikea are among our favourite activities) we decided to discover somewhere new.
Despite only being an hour from Leeds – the place I’ve lived for the past 10 years – I’d never visited Hebden Bridge before. Which was an error, as this place is super lovely.
With a canal running right through the middle there’s plenty of opportunity to spot brightly-painted narrowboats, feed hungry ducks with scraps of bread and play poosticks over the bridge.
It’s also a great place for shopping, with lots of little independent boutiques, cake-filled cafés and ye old ice creameries. The whole of Yorkshire is mad for the Tour de France (or Le Tour Yorkshire as we’re calling it) and I spotted these cute yellow bikes everywhere.
I kept my outfit really simple and my hair undone, with a bunch of flowers in my hand for good measure. Nice way to spend a sunny Saturday, don’t you think?
