We spent a nice day at Thornton surveying what needed doing to the land we are permitted to use by the owner for training ground which is very nice of Ian to do so. But he is a member so we will just say Ta ..
We walked to the fields there is 5 acres of this land. Which Ian has a project in mind for some of it. However he did say we could have a Viking hall there if we can get the funding in place to build it.
We went to see the old Sun inn a very old worldly place closed and bought by Ian a while ago anyway it needs a few skips to get rid of rubbish so we can make it a nice private hall to hold parties and a banquet which is my idea.
But I want a Viking banquet once or twice a year so I want a high table and two side tables in Viking style. Plus Mead of course now we need to brew this so that’s 6 months brewing time . in the mean time we aim to get the wiring sorted and the pumps running and buy in some real ale.
When its cleared it can be painted to look nice but we may need to get planning permission for any changes we want to the intenal areas. Most of it is clearing it out. Then we can hold a garage sale to sell unwanted items.
I will take photos to show how we are getting on with this project as I have rounded up another volunteer for August
So we begin Tomorrow

Yesterday the village was full to bursting with coach loads of tourists from america japan all over england and not as full as 1940 but still full it was freezing cold but wool is warm round ere we dont do stuff by alfs we go full out to prepare for yule thechurch gates are now covered in holly & ivy so u cant see through it a lot of the local traditions are pagan and stem back to the old ways of the folk here abouts its very obvious in what goes on that many aspects are not christian. From scroggling the holy to the goddezs rite with the holyking allowing winter into the village everythingexcepting nativity ends at the church gates last year I asked why to the gates the answer was an arrangement going back agez it jyst what we does ere. Thought best not probe too deep till I knew more locals like a conversation yesterday about goblins coming outwen veil thinning now that I know about but goblins I have seen here they sneak in from keighley causing trouble on friday nights too much Skull splitter int them to have sense get thee home. Well our purpose yesterday was to scout out a good training ground so we slipped through the church ground i to graveyard andout back along the track covered in leaves rotting back into the soil feeding the rich earth then doubling back on and around the allotments and then right Right there two good stretches of ground great for our needs
