Weather

David Hockney and the Countryfile Programme have greatly increased awareness of the Yorkshire Wolds and especially Woldgate and the woods around Boynton.  His exhibition at the Royal Academy in London will certainly be worth visiting.  You might even be lucky and see him painting, or his uniquely adapted vehicle taking his multi-dimensional photographs. www.hockneypictures.com
