16th December marks the 100th anniversary of the Bombardment of Scarborough - the first attack on our shores in 1914. There are some very interesting bits of information, accounts and photographs of that day (see www.scarboroughsmaritimeheritage.org.uk/) when over 700 shells were launched from sea in half an hour! There are also lots of events around town to mark the occasion - see discoveryorkshirecoast.com/scarborough-remembers.aspx for more info. On a brighter note, it's actually a lovely time of year to visit the Yorkshire Coast and stroll along our beautiful beaches with your fish and chips

A fascinating exhibition is open at the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle: "Birds of Paradise: Plumes & Feathers in Fashion"
25 October 2014 to 19 April 2015 -http://www.thebowesmuseum.org.uk/VisitUs/WhatsOn/BirdsOfParadisePlumesFeathersInFashion.aspx. The museum itself is well worth a visit as well .. Built by John and Josephine Bowes in the 19th Century in the style of a French Chateau, it houses an amazing diverse collection of Art, including a Silver Swan automaton which is still in working order and is displayed daily - a fabulous attraction .. Our lovely Thwaite Cottages are nearby too, very handy :)
