Boating on the River Nidd, Knaresbrough.

The River Nidd provides an excellent recreational facility for the many visitors to Knaresborough, hire a boat, take a riverside stroll, stop for lunch, a coffee, a chat. Enjoy the summer sunshine.

On the opposite bank of the river Nidd is 'Mother Shiptons Petrifying Well'

Mother Shipton is often called England's most famous Prophetess.

She lived 500 years ago during the reigns of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. As she grew older, her prophetic visions became known and feared throughout England.

One of our favourites is that she foretold that 'Around the world thoughts shall fly In the twinkling of an eye.' Which was interpreted as foretelling first the postal service, electronic telegraph, then the radio, the telephone, the fax machine, telex, mobile phone, the internet, etc. as one by one these inventions have come into general use.

Tell you what she did mean:

'Around the world thoughts shall fly In the twinkling of an eye.'

Obviously she was referring to the model GX120 ESP thought transfer module fitted to the latest TX2 Eye Twinkler ;).
