My Self Guided Tour of Settle

My time with Dalehead vets was an amazing experience. Everyone there was super nice and happy to teach! I was able to see everything I had hoped to see, and had the opportunity to get involved many times. As it is the beginning of spring, there were a ton of sheep caesarians, prolapses, and a bunch of calvings and a few cow caesarians. In addition to these things there were the usual routine visits, PDing (Pregnancy Diagnosis), and a few left displaced abomasum toggles, among other things. If anyone is looking for a farm placement, I definitely recommend Dalehead Veterinary Group!

Finally, last Sunday was my day off from work. Despite the rain I decided to do a self guided tour of Settle. Below are some photos (with descriptions) of some of the places I saw.
The Oast Guest House: My room and views from my window

Views from my walk: Castlebergh Crag (limestone cliffs), horse and sheep on the way and a view of Settle

Friends Meeting House built in 1678 (one of the older Quaker Meeting Houses) with burial ground (stones moved to the garden in the back)

The Folley built in the late 1670s as a gentleman's residence and subsequently used for a range of purposes and current home of the Museum of North Craven Life
Weaver's Cottage (top left) built in 1664, Bishopdale House (top right) built is one of the earliest 17th century dwellings built in Settle, the Shambles (bottom left) built as an open market hall in the 1600s with a slaughter house in the basement and shops above, and Ye Olde Naked Man Cafe, formerly a coaching inn and built in 1663.

Once I returned for my walk I had tea for one
