John O’Gaunts Castle

Last week our walking group walked from the Sun Inn to John O’Gaunts Castle, we were planning to walk from Fewston reservoir, but closed roads due to resurfacing scuppered those plans! We managed to meet up and decided to start the walk a little bit further on at the Sun Inn.

John O’Gaunts is a ruined Royal hunting lodge at Haverah Park towards Harrogate. It is next to the Beaver Dyke reservoir, it was a lovely walk across fields and down old lanes to the reservoir.

We walked all the way round the reservoir, crossing the old dam, before stopping for lunch next to a ruined farmhouse. We were delighted to see a deer just nearby, but we weren’t quite so keen on the cows!

After our walk we sat outside the Sun Inn with a drink, chatting and enjoying the beautiful mackerel sky.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
