I’m still trawling through my photos from our week off and I’m not quite ready to return to work next week. We’ve had a great time and even extended our stay in York by a night after visiting the sights in and around the local area with our friends. On the weekend we visited Mother Shipton’s Cave in Knaresborough, with a nice walk along the River Nidd, a look at the Petrifying Well and we stopped for lunch
The Petrifying Well is on the bank of the River Nidd and is thought to be the only one of it’s kind in England. I had never heard of or seen a petrifying well before and was quite intrigued. As we arrived we saw that objects were hung with the water dripping on them as part of the petrification process. It was a pretty spectacular scene and the museum afterwards showed many objects which had completed the process. I will definitely be visiting again with J when she was old enough to understand.
