Well for the last couple of days its been go go go here in Brungerley. Yesterday was an early start retired teacher Sue came and helped me set up Brungerley’s very own pop up cafe. It went down a storm tea, coffee, hot chocolate, chocolate brownies , flap jack we made it all (well sainsburys made a lot of it but we heated things up!) Every cuppa that was served had a tag on it with a question we asked all cafe users if they wouldn’t mind answering them and some lovely tales were told such as the opening of the sculpture trail, social clubs for dogs and ghost of Peganel.
That afternoon I met the ramblers who ramble 2 – 3 times a week and bi gum did they put me through my paces. Derek was my saviour full of encouragement and good conversation Derek use to be a engineer so we spoke about the interestingly designed iron gate of Brungerley park he told me how it was a gate that used gravity as it has an iron ball which it rolls off swinging it back and forward its a pretty nifty design! I saw some fantastic misty views and gave me more of understanding of how vast the hills are and how much there is to be discovered!
Betty & Chips
Today I met Betty and chips. Betty’s great grandfather bought cross hill quarry and her family worked in the quarry industry and were a big part of Clitheroe. Betty is lovely she is very kind and has a great sense of humour we sat for a while in the van exchanging stories and drinking tea.
Heres a audio recording of our conversation which includes telling off a dog, myths of brungerley park and Betty’s lovely humour!
