The Street View

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there!” ~ Lewis Carroll

Today I’m taking part in another challenge from Ryan Photography. The photo prompt is Streets.  Love it!

To kick off this street post, I’m beginning with something a little different, last Saturday’s ‘Otley Folk Festival’. The festival showcases live bands and dancers performing in pubs and on the streets of the little market town; oh what a joy to watch.

The Northampton Witchmen, filmed by my daughter Sophie, dance Morris from the dark side, and initially sent her three-year- old scurrying behind mum’s legs! A Pagan Ritual Dance meets Street Entertainment.

The band in this next video, perform on the street outside an Otley pub,  they play one of my all-time country favourites with a title that is just perfect for this post!

  1. Got some pictures of me in The Shambles. taken in 2005,There is a street at or near Wells Cathedral that I thought was the oldest street in England, perhaps it’s the oldest residential street as there were/are no shops or business ‘s in it. Then again York is a pretty old town, I loved it; and the best beer I’ve ever had.

    1. The Shambles is generally recognised as the oldest street dating back to medieval times, there’s actually a Roman road underneath.

      You are right Brian, Vicars’ Close, Wells in Somerset is thought to be the oldest residential street in England.
