I think people who live in the countryside have far more nostalgia for the past than 'townies' - after all there is far more to be nostalgic about.
And yesterday, as we drove up the lane to go to Hawes, we had a perfect example when we stopped to allow this to go past. What a glorious way to travel about the countryside in the sunshine.
Today is Yorkshire Day. Three cheers for the old North Riding.
