We drove over to Ingleborough in order to check out some of the family background.
A lot of my family on my mother’s mother’s side come from round Ingleton. My grandmother left home at the age of fourteen after her mother died and her father remarried. The story is that she did not get on with her stepmother who was too religious and strict. She then got involved with a fairground boxer, ran away with him and got pregnant. Checking out family history has its fun side but it largely meant heading round a lot of churches and graveyards.
We started off at the wonderful Malham tarn.
