From Augustinian Abbey to Bad Pollyanna

As this was the first Saturday in the month, it was my night out at Flock, and with my favourite new group ~ Bad Pollyanna headlining, there was no way I was going to miss it even though we also wanted to go with our camping group to Bolton Abbey for the weekend..

Bolton Abbey
So on Friday we did go to Bolton Abbey set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales on the banks of the River Wharfe. With just under 30,000 acres of beautiful countryside. A monastery was originally founded in 1120. Bolton Abbey was technically a priory, despite its name. It was founded in 1154 by the Augustinian order. We were camping in an overflow car park, at the top of the main car park there is the local Post Office and gift shop which is very expensive around the corner in the small village is a bakery we decided to buy two scones to have after tea. They cost us £1.10 each Chris said she could make a hundred for that, I wish she had, as her are better!

Saturday we had a trip in to Skipton and did a bit of shopping before having lunch at a small café type place, it was very good for the price charged. Saturday afternoon I had a rest before heading home for a quick change to go out to Flock.

Dawn Of Elysium
The first band on were Dawn Of Elysium from Bradford and they did an excitant job of warm-up for the incredible, fantastic Bad Pollyanna. Yes regular readers of this blog know I simply love them.
See why, here. this is their new video for Hollow one of my favourite songs.

Bad Pollyanna
As soon as the gig finished I left the club, not stopping for the records and headed home in my car to take Chris`s car back to Bolton Abbey to try to get there before the gates are locked at 11 `O` clock. I just got there at 10.59. Had a cup of tea at Richard and Marion`s and then to bed!
