The majestic towers at the main entrance to Skipton Castle

No 1 in our book!

Located at the top of the fine old market town of Skipton.  Skipton is a lovely old town, with some good class shops and food. Sadly, the market is going the way of most markets – being flooded with cheap imported goods. However some good traditional stalls still exist.

 

Sandal castle, near Wakefield
