We arranged to meet friends who live in Manchester so wanted to find somewhere half way. Thanks to Calderdale Mumbler News Page we found Shibden Hall and spent a glorious day here ☀️

The grounds are massive, the hall looked beautiful, the playground was great. Plus there was a boating lake, plenty of space to run free and two trains 🚂. One was a miniature railway and the other ran along the path. The playground was also really near the main trainline so great for little (and big) train fans 🚞

We took our own picnic and it cost us just £1.50 to park all day so other than the cost of a ride on the train (£2 each) and an ice cream 🍦it was a pretty cheap day out!!
