    As long as the weather holds tomorrow should be a great free day out around the River Aire. The focus will be Thwaite Mills in Stourton to the South of Leeds, out towards Rothwell/Wakefield but there will be activities at Clarence Dock and Granary Wharf.
    Thwaite starts at 11am but they will be doing a formal opening of a new events and activities space in the old Drying Shed at 2pm.

    Yes, I went. The Weather held as well which was nice.
    Thwaite has just opened up the old Drying Sheds as an interactive education space, and most excitingly will hopefully have a modern Archimedes Screw turbine in the next year or so drawing constant power from the Aire.
    It was nice to see the Buses from the Keithley Transport Museum being used to give free rides between the Armouries at Thwaite. I was all nostalgic over the LT Routemaster, once a familiar sight on the streets of London, now they have those awful bendy buses (which are far too long).

    Yes, I should have mentioned it earlier in the week, I think the weather put a few people off.
