Ah well, this is where the plan came unstuck. We arrived by a track that came to the back of the hall. There was no sign of life about. We saw a sign that directed us to the World Peace Cafe but it was closed; a sign on the door with the opening hours stated that the cafe was closed on a Monday and Tuesday. Buddhists like the rest of us it would seem don't like working on bank holidays. We both vowed that we would return when the cafe was open.
We headed south through the grounds for a short time then picked up the road to Nunburnholme back to the car. This stretch did take in the grave of a record breaking Yorkshire Wolds cow!
