For those intending to go to Market Day in Kirkby on Thursday of this week, it will be held in the New Road, No. 2, car park because of the filming of the Voyage of Dr. Doolittle.
This is how the market square looked today. (Photo’s courtesy of Kirkby Lonsdale Charter Market).
Please remember that the vast majority of the town is open as usual with a park and ride scheme in operation from the Rugby Club to assist visitors.
For Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week all buses arrive and leave from the bus stop at Booths, and do not pass through the Market Square.
I understand that on Wednesday they will be filming a horse chase up Jingling lane, through the Swine Market and passed Ruskin’s View. A typical Kirkby Wednesday then, but regrettably no Morris Dancers.
