Where we live!

We live in a stone-built 5/6 bedroom detached house in God's Own County of Yorkshire near the historic village of Thornton, the home of the Bronte family of literary fame. Our house is in a lovely quiet, private valley with horses at the bottom of the garden and a stream running through the field. But only 16 years ago one of Old Yorkshire's finest mills stood where our house does today. Here are some pictures of Blackburn's Mill and its demolition.
