Throughout July and August Settle is decorated with flowerpot creations of every shape, size and design. All the community join in the fun; schools, churches, businesses, individuals, clubs, and visitor attractions. Our aim is to make you smile whilst you explore the town centre, the riverside and the hidden parts of Settle that visitors don’t usually find. You can choose to follow one of the Flowerpot Trails that are available to purchase from the Tourist Information Centre (LINK)
We had gone up to visit my parents not realising this event was on, we like to call at the Ye Olde Naked Man Cafe and have a look round the book shops (well I do !) then onto Giggleswick.
They were every were you looked , we didn't find them all but the Elephant on the phone box has to be my favourite.
I was born in Langcliffe the village next to Settle , Settle is a lovely place to visit with many little alleyways and old buildings, here was the old registry office.
We had a look , beautiful things for the home but this old range is stunning.
The Shambles is A Grade II Listed Building in the square.
This ally way is one of my favourite places (apart from the wheelie bins) the little cobbles, many houses bunched together and a old book shop.
In the afternoon we had a walk to Giggleswick church, Church of St Alkelda
(there will be a post on my church blog)
Giggleswick is a sleepy village full of lovely old buildings.

There were flower pots to find in Giggleswick too.
Old houses look lovely with a dash of summer flowers.
Which is your favourite flower pot ?
