War Weekend at Grosmont


The weather was lovely today, quite crisp but fresh and very autumnal. We headed over to the North York Railway in Grosmont where the war weekend festivities were taking part. A wonderful afternoon. I thought of my blogging friend Pearl and took these photos specially for her and her husband. They enjoy this type of thing and I figured it just may bring a smile their way.

  1. We've been on that train and it's like being rocked in a cradle.

    I fell asleep on the trip up from Pickering and on the trip back from Grosmont as well.

    Despite that, I recommend the ride to anyone, with a stop off for a drink in Goathland (Aidensfield) en route.

  5. I've never heard of this sort of thing. We sure don't do it here. The only thing close, I guess, would be Remembrance Day November 11th every year.

  6. It looks like it was a fun day out. I love that part of the world.

  7. We went on the Severn Valley Railway but it was just a ride on the train, nowhere near as interesting as your day out.

  8. These weekends are so popular aren't they - we had one in July here in Leyburn and the place was heaving with men in uniforms (all officers I noted) and ladies in stockings with seams!

  9. Not sure I 'get' the playing at wartime, but I do get the dressing up!
