Les Hutton here. I'm the person behind the web site. I'd like to warmly welcome you to the February issue of Yorkshire Allsorts - my free e-zine.

If you've just joined us this issue then an extra special welcome - hope you enjoy the web site and this complimentary newsletter.

Well - here we are, already half way through February. How time flies by! Here in Yorkshire, as I write, the sun is shining from a cloudless, pale blue, winter's sky. A keen, overnight frost has left the rooftops, trees and fields with a pretty hoare frost blanket and crocus are blooming along the grass verges lining the roads into town.

I've added two new pages to Yorkshire-Visitors-Guide. If and when you come to Yorkshire you'll find many different ways to get here. And, of course, when you're here, the next question is - how to get around? Take a look at the new pages to help with your planning.

I've included the picture below because I think it gives us all something to look forward to as the northern winter gives way to Sping and Summer. The photo was taken by my brother Malcolm who has kindly given his permission for me to share it with you. Malcolm is one of the volunteers who devised the Bradford Millennium Way. One of the long distance walks that you'll find in Yorkshire. This one links many smaller footpaths to form a circular walk of about forty five miles.

I really want you to enjoy reading Yorkshire Allsorts and I hope you find something - an idea or thought, perhaps - to take away from each issue.

Warm regards


Whats new on Yorkshire Visitors Guide?

Getting here to Yorkshire is the theme of the first new page that I want to let you know about. Because I live here, this is not really something I'd given much thought to. When I did turn my mind to looking at the different ways, it came as a surprise to find so many. The link on the home page is called "Getting There" and the page title is "Travel to Yorkshire - Any Which Way You Please". Heres a link to get straight there

Have you been to Yorkshire? If so, how did you get here? Do you have some words of advice for fellow travellers? Will you share your experiences? If your answer is yes then follow this link and send me your story. I'll turn it into a web page of your own with places for others to leave comments. They'll be able to rate your story and perhaps send their own to add to a growing resource of information and tips.

The second new page also has a travel theme. This one is devoted to getting around once you're arrived. Once again I was pleasantly surprised to discover lots of different ways. Some are pretty essential for getting you from A to B. But others are available that let you meander along at such a pace as to really get close to nature. Well, such as hiring one of the canal narrowboats similar to the one in the photo above. These not only carry you from one place to another, but are also your home while on board - perhaps for a week of your holiday. The link on the home page is called "Getting Around" and the page title is "Getting Around Yorkshire". Heres a link to get straight there

I hope you enjoy the new pages and find them useful. They may give you some ideas about how you'd like to get to and around Yorkshire. I'll be turning my attention, next, to places to stay while you're here. Believe me, there's a vast range from which to choose - it all depends on your budget and preference! See you next time...
