The Strolling Sisters were out and about again last week. 8 WI members from Hartburn Village, Yarm, Stainton and Long Newton and Elton had a lovely day at Barnard Castle.
The morning was spent at Bowes Museum visiting the V&A shoe exhibition. This really was quite an amazing collection ranging from the 15th century right up to the present with examples from the ordinary to the bizarre and the plain to the flamboyant. Who would have thought shoes could be so interesting? After refreshments we did a circular walk around Egglestone Abbey and managed to get back before the rain set in.
Next month we are off to the Arboretum at Bedale on Wednesday 19th Oct.
