Beating the bounds

Rogation days are the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday running up to Ascension Day (always a Thursday).  On those days it was traditional to walk ceremonially round the boundary of the Parish; this was known as  ‘beating the bounds’.  We plan to walk the, approximately, 8-mile circuit of the Parish of St Robert of Knaresborough, Pannal on Bank Holiday Monday, May 27th , which is a Rogation Day this year  More details of what should be a lovely family day out will be available shortly… put the date in your diaries and watch this space.
