Visiting Kirbymoorside is like visiting our past. My Dad’s family are from this market town and were a popular family serving the community as the local undertaker and Antique Dealer. We always visit Penny Bank Cafe – serving fresh local produce before walking round the beautiful church yard. It’s lovely to watch the children exploring the towering grave stones and reading the ‘Potter’ surnames from the 18th Century. Alongside this, the experience of sharing such occasions as a family has different meanings to the living generations. My Dad was taken suddenly by a heart attack in December 2010 whilst he was doing what he loved; walking. We scattered the ashes over heather two years ago. Each time I visit the place I feel more at peace with his passing and I’m sure that has something to do with surroundings of my present, past and future.
