Friend W and I are off in about an hour to our little cathedral city of Ripon, about twenty miles south of here. We shall first of all go to the award winning restaurant Lockwood's for a spot of lunch, and then - the purpose of our visit - we shall go to the cathedral to see The Great Northern Art Show, which is on every year at this time. It showcases Northern artists and is always well worth a visit.
Of course one cannot take photographs and I know from past visits that long range views of the cathedral itself are extremely difficult as it is surrounded by buildings. But I shall do my best to give you a taster of our day out - even if it is only a photograph of my lunch to whet your appetite! Back later.
