There is an article in the Guardian today which states that Skipton’s High Street is in the final for the accolade of Britain’s Greatest Street. It is in competition with the Portobello Road and Kensington High Street in London. I can’t imagine how they are going to judge it – they have virtually nothing in common. Skipton’s High Street is dominated by a market for four days of the week. One of the highlights of the year is Sheep Day and part of the high street is in fact called Sheep Street. It does have a nice church at the top and a pretty magnificent castle behind that. More info here.
