Otley and Ilkley

A trip in the car with Siobhan, my support worker, to two pretty Yorkshire towns. Ilkley is by far the better known, being a popular spa town, whereas Otley is merely a small market town. Despite this I much preferred Otley, and all but the last photograph were taken there.





















I've previously visited both towns, but only as a base for walking; climbing up Otley Chevin or Ilkley Moor, and so had never really taken the time to explore them. It's many years since Siobhan had been to Ilkley [to an exhibition of watercolours in the Winter Garden] and she'd never been to Otley before.
