G is for Grosmont.

            For ABC Wednesday this week I thought I would show you some pics of our little village Grosmont.Grosmont which is pronounced Gromont a silent s,used to be a very busy village having  a thriving iron works and a brick yard,butchers, bank,haberdashery 3 public houses and a railway.Now we have a railway a little grocery shop,2 tea rooms a book shop,a railway gift shop an d 1 public house and a lot less people living here.We used to have a school 2 churches now no school and only 1 church.We are now a little country village that has very quite winters and very busy summer and autumn times.As you can see from my pictures the railway is now the centre of the village and brings thousands of visitors each year.















           Hope you have enjoyed my pictures and that you are all well,we have had lovely weather again here today just hope it is here to stay fingers and toes crossed.Take care my friends.Love Jill xx

  1. We are so looking forward to our stay in Grosmont this coming summer! It looks so peaceful and picturesque - we may even go to the Sunday service when there. Do you have a photo of the cottage? Have a Great week, Jill,

  3. I really enjoyed this tour of your village--I went through the photos twice. Interesting that in most photos of UK towns/villages the houses and shops are built right on top of the street.
