Walk and Weft

Helwith Bridge to Moughton Summit and Crummack Dale.

Posted by Ann Cruickshanks on

Sunday 27th October 2019. Our walk today started on an easy accessible car park, free with plenty of parking space, that we have used for walks many times at Helwith Bridge, north of Settle in the Yorkshire Dales. On leaving the car park we turned left and followed the road to Helwith Bridge Quarry, from there taking the path up to Moughton Nab which runs along side Dry Rig Quarry. On this path there is a dramatic view point of the quarry which looks across to the gouged face of the quarry.       The quarry owners, Tarmac, have installed a...

Launch of Synthesizer Covers

Posted by Daniel Paulo on

We have just launch our first Synthesizer Dust Cover - for the Korg Minilogue -  which has been in development for the last few weeks.  Having recently bought a lovely Moog Matriarch Synthesizer I was keen for Ann to make a cover for it as she has done for previous purchases.  Whilst walking near Conistone a few weeks back we started brainstorming the idea of making covers for gadgets, and it made sense to use the much more compact Korg Minilogue to develop the idea which went through a number of prototypes. Now it is available we can look at...

From Dent Train Station to Ribblehead Train Station.

Posted by Ann Cruickshanks on

 Sunday 20th October 2019. This weeks walk involved catching the 9.45am train from Skipton in North Yorkshire to Dent in Cumbria, then walking over Great Knoutberry Hill to Ribblehead station. The train journey is on the well known Settle to Carlisle line, which is a 73 mile long railway line in the North of England. The route crosses remote scenic areas of the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines. What a great way to get into the Dales without the HASSLE of today`s needing-to-go-faster motorists. You can enjoy the spectacular view of the Three Peaks, Penyghent, Ingleborough and Whernside and...

Moorland Walk Finishes Up in TV Set!

Posted by Daniel Paulo on

Saturday 12th October 2019. Our walks are a little bit unambitious at the moment, we are hopefully building up to bigger things.  A very good easy walk we do quite regularly is Conistone to Grassington which we walked again last Saturday (12th October). After much bad weather we finally had a nice day, though there were showers around.  Instead of starting the walk up Conistone Dib, a narrow dry limestone ravine, we quickly gained height on Scot Gate Lane, passing the distinctive antenna on Wassa Hill before joining the Dalesway.  Here the track is mostly green and very easy going...

Yarndale Wool Festival, Skipton, North Yorkshire.

Posted by Ann Cruickshanks on

Saturday 28th September 2019. I had a lovely experience and lots of pleasure at Yarndale Festival on Saturday. I enjoyed gazing over all the retailers' stalls packed full with delightful goodies.  I just had to take a photo of the huge collection of teddy bears that was a display in the entrance to the show.  I have never seen so many colourful Teds in one place.
