Return to Marrick Priory

‘When Love Goes Wrong’ – Marilyn Monroe & Jane Russell


Flash and I left the lodgings at Marrick in very low spirits with each other.  I actually felt like I hated him and I’m pretty sure he felt the same.  He left his shirt there, and when the farmer’s daughter chased after us with it, we didn’t dare look back, thinking we were being chased by a bull. 


In Marrick, we saw the priory we’d been aiming for, said ‘Oh, look, there’s the Priory’ and carried on walking.


After lunch, looking like gyppos in a posh tea rooms, we walked back to Richmond – with Flash being bothered by wasps and horseflies – pitched our tent + camped on the edge of the woods by the River Swale.
