Saturday was a no go with housebuilding. Snow had fallen yet again and again I was stuck in the house. So I threw out plenty of bird seed along with a couple of suet cakes and watched the birds. It got a little daunting at one point as the Crow Family who live up here on the hill decided to sit in the oak tree and peer through the french doors at me. It felt a bit like a scene from The Birds.
My next stop was an old chapel which looked very old. It dated from 1790 and had an old graveyard so I went for a walkabout and read on a sign that Lord Fairfax worshipped here. I found this wonderful old book online about the chapel.
There's a section entitled A Gentleman of Verona which is interesting.
I drove further on and came to a place that caught my eye. The side of the road was loaded with statues, carvings and old farm machinery as well as old garden furniture.
