This week I set out to visit a little village called Scorton near the River Wyre on the edges of the Forest of Bowland. The village is relatively new, dating back to the 16th century when it was then known as Scurton, which translated from the Anglo-Saxon means farmstead near a ditch or ravine.

A little dog was so friendly, every time he got up to greet a new friend he managed to tangle himself up a little more on his lead. He just seemed happy to be out in the air.

We had an excellent lunch and drinks at The Priory, which serves the village as a restaurant, tea-rooms, pub & accommodation. The sun even came out for the duration of our stay and made it a very pleasant afternoon.
