Stokesley, North Yorkshire, is a very pleasant small town and always seems busy and bustling with activity. In the high street (top left) The Angel Cafe & Tearoom (left) and the Tearoom above the Yorkshire Store (right) were welcome refuges on a damp grey day waiting for the car to be repaired. There are some fine interesting buildings to see and a walk by the river, but one must return on a fine day!
