British Summer times begins...

Sunday, the first day of British Summer Time and it was a scorcher!


Off we went to Monk Bretton Priory, a hidden gem in Barnsley.

It's a really great place to visit, you almost forget you are in a town.

Not the sea views that you get at Whitby abbey, but not bad. And best off all, it's free to get into Monk Bretton Priory. It's an English Heritage freebie!

It's got one of the best preserved monastic drainage systems in Europe!

Which the kids explored.

But the clocks going forward and losing an hours sleep was a bit much for the men.

Revived!

Exploring wells...
and staircases that go no where!

'cheese'

Fungi

Butter wouldn't melt!

About two years ago we came on an archaeological dig, which was organised by Sheffield University. I would really recommend going to one of these if you get the chance, the kids got to dig, wash the finds, and sort them.
