There were 14 participants on this week's trip. With the weather forecast predicting a 70% chance of precipitation, we were expecting a wet day.
Our first port of call was a toilet stop in Tadcaster. With only one toilet, a 20p fee and an automatic door with a self-cleaning cycle between each visit, it became a drawn out process. Several 20 pences were lost ( according to a local this is not uncommon), some gave up and others snuck into the toilet at a nearby surgery.
Anyway, we pressed on to Bolton Percy Station Nature Reserve where parking was very limited ( well done Stuart). Bolton Percy ceased functioning as a station in the year I was born. ( That will send you all to google.....). The small reserve spans the old platform and bridge embankments. You cannot forget the railway history with numerous trains racing past on the Leeds to York rail line.
