27 intrepid souls braved the fog to make our annual meeting at Hebden in the Yorkshire Dales – beautiful whatever the weather.  Two members, from Kent and Perthshire, clocked up around 240 miles each to get there.

After the usual round of refreshments we were entertained again by Dorothy and Brian Burrows with their international miscellany of slides.

Our guest speaker had had to drop out a couple of days beforehand with a bout of flu, but David Garside ably stepped into the breach, taking us on a scenic tour of Yorkshire’s waterways and their waymarkers.

The afternoon opened with Lionel Scott describing the turnpike that failed, between Leeds and Wetherby, despite much interest from local property speculators – and concluded with a lightning overview of Scottish milestones from Christine Minto.
