DAY 25 - Consett to Doncaster 22/06/2005
Durham cathedralWe drove into Durham and walked to and around Durham cathedral, another beautiful old church.

We then went onto the small town of Thirsk to have a traditional ploughman's lunch.

We then drove to York to see York Minster and a stained glass window billed as “a single window as big as a tennis court”. From the outside it looked like any other so we saved our tourist dollar and stayed outside.





Wandering around YorkOur money saved on the Minster was of course spent on food instead. We ventured into York township which has been kept and maintained it in its quaint old style.

Parking in Leeds was a nightmare so we flagged the much anticipated pea/pie/spud or tripe (Roger’s choice) and drove onto Doncaster for tea at the “Little Chef” , a motorway-diner chain throughout England.

Having driven past many campsites for days we now couldn't find one because it was all precious agriculture land.
