Caroline’s excellent adventures!

Caroline, one of our greatest EC Bristol teachers, talks about her adventures on her bike.10405_167468793428154_1811374080_n

I got back from my literary cycling tour of the North. Starting from near Blackpool, then over the Ribble Valley and the Trough of Bowland to Slaidburn. Day 2 was over the Pennines to Haworth and a day off visiting the home of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte. Day 4 to Harrogate. Day 5 over the rolling Howardian hills to Castle Howard for a bit of Tudor history and then onto Old Malton. Day 6 involved some cheating by getting on an old steam train at Pickering, which makes a stop at the train station used for Hogwarts in Harry Potter, for 2 days in Whitby visiting the Abbey and the church where Bram Stoker's Dracula is set and eating lots of fish and chips. Day 8 I was back on the bike to Scarborough where Anne Bronte was buried and Wilfred Owen wrote some poetry before going home.  After all of that I needed a holiday.
