Wharncliffe Crags, South Yorkshire

Ben is still in the honeymoon period with his new drone (as introduced last week in Thurgoland from above). I must admit, out of all the gadgets that he has bought in the past the drone is one of my favourites. I love all the photos we have of the children, and now we can see everyone from a new perspective. He has wanted to go to Wharncliffe Crags to get some footage of an awesome family walk.

Family Life – April 2020

I think we would all agree that this has been the strangest month of our lives. The government announced in mid-March that we were having to stay at home because of the coronavirus pendemic. I have already written a post about a typical day in isolation with the kids. This is what it was like having a whole month at home!

Greno Woods, South Yorkshire

The government announced last week that if you have children with special needs you can go by car to travel somewhere safer to walk. We haven’t all been out together since this whole thing started. It is really hard to walk on narrow paths around the village in a large group, especially if some of those children have ADHD too!

Thurgoland Heritage Trail

Ever since I found out that I had family that lived in Thurgoland over 100 years ago, I have been trying to find out as much as I can. Some of this information I have come across quite naturally and accidentally, like finding 3rd great grandfather Giles Button’s house when I was out walking with Sam. Or finding information about the wire mills while lunching in the pub.
