Our relocation to Hedon took place on Saturday 24th January 2009 following redundancy on the west coast (Blackpool).
So here we are in the idyllic town of Hedon in East Yorkshire. Having been born in Hull and lived in the area all our lives prior to 2000, we are not actually ‘new’ to the area – but perhaps we are looking at Hedon with new, fresh eyes.
The picture is a greetings card on sale in the featured local post office and is published by Rushay Arts from an original painting by Stuart McKenzie Stoppard.
Also featured is Nutmegs, a charming teashop that sells fantastic yummy looking cakes!
A small market takes place every Wednesday just opposite the buildings shown here. Apparently a market has been taking place in the town for around 800 years!
I visited Hedon Museum yesterday for the first time and was greeted by a very enthusiastic gentleman who was very keen that we enjoyed our visit. As indeed we did! Whilst very small it is well worth a visit – I was delighted to find they were using a photograph of mine taken in 2004 of my tour of Hedon with the Mayor and her official entourage in the annual “testing of the ale” ceremony (more about this in the future).
The Museum is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays 10am – 4pm.
