||Was it Sirloin on the Heritage Group Outing??
On the 25th July, a bright sunny morning, The Heritage Group headed north to Lancashire.
First stop was a guided tour of Houghton Tower, a 16th century fortified hilltop manor house, home of the de Houghton family since the Norman Conquest. In the panelled banqueting hall is the Tudor table where. In 1617 King James1 dined on
home -reared loin of beef. In appreciation of it’s wonderful flavour he ‘Knighted’ it Sir loin.
Our lasting memories are
of the dramatic mile-long drive - ‘Did we remember to lock the front door, or should we just go back and check?’...magnificent views of Lancashire.
Cumbria and the Hills of
North Wales and a warm, welcoming
After lunch at Oswaldtwistle Mill , we toured Pendle Witch
country with a Blue Badge guide, who shared
his knowledge of the local area. We admired the impressive home of
Alice Nutter, a lady of position and means who was one of the nine local people hung for witchcraft at Lancaster in 1612.
After returning to Oswaldtwistle Mill for a welcome cup of tea, there was time for retail therapy, and judging from the number of bags brought back to the coach, this opportunity was readily seized upon by many.
Thanks to the organizers for all their hard work, and Ron the coach driver with his very up market vehicle, complete with satellite navigation visible to all passengers.
A superb day out enjoyed by all. We recommend an early visit to this area.
