Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Due to illness and holidays our Sunday run squad was a bit depleted. Never mind, on a lovely sunny morning we left the Old Stone Trough for our visit to The Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield. We had great views travelling over the tops from Colne dropping down to Oxenhope and then up again to Queensbury.
Our coffee stop was taken at Kershaws Garden Centre and shopping village. Unfortunately for the ladies there was only time for coffee and cake and no shopping.
Suitably refreshed we crossed the M62 and skirted round Huddersfield and on to our destination.
Since our last visit the car parking had been moved to the top of the park and although it meant a longer walk it was very pleasant and well organised.
Various new exhibits were on show but probably the highlight of the visit was the walk around the lake and the fantastic show of native Bluebells in the woods, made even better with the sunshine peeping through the trees.
After a few hours walking it was onto our next event , the picnic. The entertainment while we were dining was provided by around twenty lambs skipping and chasing each other around on the field we were eating in.
Our outward journey had been on the busier roads so decided to head back via the M1. M62 and M66.
A great day out and sunshine all the way.
