This week The Gallery theme is about painting a picture of the world we live in: The hidden bits, the bits you feel are special and people should know about. The bits people wouldn’t necessarily see. It is inspired by the BBC initiative to discover Secret Britain.
When Countryfile was on TV on Monday night this is what the boys said their secret place was.
We have a place that we go, a place that is just perfect. It has a fjord, so the boys can watch as the cars drive through it.
It has a beck so the boys can paddle, now they don’t care if it is in wellies and clothes or wetsuits and crocs. They just love water.
It has grass, so you can picnic and we always do.
It often has wind (well we are talking the North of England here), so perfect for kites.
It has some fantastic signed walks too, even a roman road.
So where is this wonderful place I hear you ask, well it doesn’t have a name, it is on a road in the middle of the North Yorkshire Moors, about 15 minutes drive from TheMadHouse. It is the place we go to have fun as a family, to relax, to enjoy each others company and to just be.
It is our place.
