Love the pictures. Have many happy memories of playing cricket in Thixendale,a truly remarkable setting. A good pub to visit after the match,I think called the Cross Keys. Going back 20 years or so . Loved the Yorkshire Wolds.

Awesome!

The reason we went to Thixendale on this day is to sledge on the bank next to the cricket pitch behind the cross keys. Most hills in the area there is a fence at the bottom but as its a cricket pitch you don't have to worry about hitting anything and fly down like a maniac. I remember we even went down the bank on a canoe this day. Hoping to buy a house in this village one day, it has a facisnating microclimate and would love to build up years of data.

I would say go with your dreams. Its a super interesting location and a great spot to record some low winter temps with cold inversion. Probabaly one of the best places in England to hold snow when conditions are right.Funny enough, talk about the cricket ground, it had no changing rooms, so strip off in the car ! But the advantage is a great local pub next to the ground. We had a few big hitters in our team that peppered the sheep on the side of the hill you mentioned. 40 years ago , I fell in love with an Austrian village and now I live there for most of the year, so you can do it in Thixendale.

Cheers and good luck.

Thanks for those kind words! Did you know Maud and Eric who still run the village shop? I visit her often and love hearing Mauds tales of winters gone by when they were cut off/stranded for days, I actually helped her deliver some post in Dec 10 as the postman couldnt get into the village.

I've just turned 26 and me and my fiancee are almost ready to buy, we have our heart set on the Wolds, Thixendale would be the dream, but there are many other beautiful villages in the area. 

I've attached some more photos from Thixendale in early Dec 2010, this time for you as it includes the cricket pitch and the pub.

Thanks again, Vizzy :)
