Very smooth and with light traffic all the way until Stansted Airport. Even with a stop at the services (the worst coffee at Starbucks I have ever tasted) it took us little ...

... It became showery as we travelled north and east, and was still wet when we stopped on the Pennine Moors at Haworth, famous for its connection to the Bronte family. The Bronte sisters were born in nearby Thornton, but wrote most of their famous works while living at the Haworth Parsonage. This building is now a museum dedicated to the ...
