Skipton, ‘The Gateway to the Dales’ and winner of the prestigious ‘2009 Great High Street of the Year award’. A wonderful historic market town situated in North Yorkshire, right in the heart of beautiful scenery. It’s not hard to see why Skipton is such a popular tourist destination – with the superbly preserved 900 year old medieval Skipton Castle,famous open-air Skipton market, and of course the Leeds-Liverpool Canal passing right through the centre. The canal itself is Britain’s longest, at 127 miles,and was originally used for transporting coal, stone, cloth and other cargo after its completion in 1816. Of course the canal’s busy industrial heyday has now passed, but the Leeds-Liverpool is still enjoyed by thousands as a brilliant way of exploring the area, reliving the past and relaxing as the world passes by. Please choose from the following selection of homemade pies:Steak and Ale, Steak and Kidney, Minced Beef and Onion, Chicken & Mushroom, Chicken, Ham & Leek or Homity (cheese, potato, leek and onion). All are served with homemade creamy mash, mushy peas and gravy. There will be a fully stocked bar on board for your drinks requirements. We will need to know your choice of pie when booking. If booking online please sent your requirements by separate email to lorraine@hallamtravel.co.uk
