Austwick welcomes the new Bishop

The new Bishop of Bradford, the Rt. Revd. Nick Baines, visited the Austwick area on 21 June.  Making a very early start the episcopal party, which included local clergy and parishioners, walked up Pen y Ghent in very wet conditions.  They were met at the summit by an advance party who had prepared welcome hot drinks and refreshments.
