We went to the South Yorkshire village of Cawthorne on Sunday for no other reason than it was a sunny Bank Holiday and I had never been there before. At least, I thought I had never been, but Isobel insisted we had visited the village several times. I looked through my old photographs to see if I could find any of Cawthorne - as far as I am concerned, if I haven't photographed it, I haven't been.
In the centre of the village there is an old stone cross and drinking fountain which is decorated with carved serpents. It looks ancient, but a little research shows it is only about 150 years old. Not everything is as it seems - perhaps that is true of my memory as well.
