Where I’m from in Arkansas, you’d be hard pressed to find any structure still standing from 1850. In fact, Arkansans…Can you name one?
Some of the buildings in this tiny village of Arncliffe date from the 1600s.
And Arncliffe was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086.
It’s been inhabited a long, long time.
Typical of so many other villages in England.
Typical, yes, but special to me—because my heroine Stephanie climbed the ridge from Kettlewell, across the River Skirfare, and ate lunch here. I’ll show you where they ate in the next post.
Do you recognize why the flags were draped over the buildings?
