Dark and Satanic*, or Warm and Welcoming?
I can’t quite make my mind up. This is the wonderfully restored and preserved, Gale Mill in the Yorkshire Dales; it was late afternoon in November and the light was fading.
There had been heavy rain the day before, and the river was thundering by. The roads were awash.
Rivers were not to be messed with.
And then there was the snow, we’d chosen quite a high route to get to Gale and Hawes, but traveling in the campervan, we decided discretion was the better part of valour, turned around and took the low route instead!
In the end the snow didn’t become a problem, but the local highways department were in a state of preparedness…
I was glad we were in the campervan and not camping!
I’m also glad we spent money on a diesel heater for the van, rather than spending the money on a van in any other colour than white, which comes at a premium. We were snug as bugs.
* Dark and satanic mills, might not be what I always thought they were!
