On our drive back to York for a return train ride to the Manchester airport, we stopped a few miles down the road in Husthwaite to see a 12th century Norman church.

Back in York at the UK Rail Station, we stashed our luggage in the rental car, with permission, and made a quick visit to the National Railway Museum, a short walk away.

There are a few old trains to be seen on the Epilogue page, as well as a reference to Sir Nigel Gresley, who designed the blue Mallard engine shown here.

When we arrived back in Manchester in 90 minutes, it was enjoyable to walk up a few flights from the rail station, right into the elegant Radisson Blue hotel, with great interior colors, very relaxing.  We had a terrific candlelit dinner that night maybe four stories up, looking out over the airport, as it closed down for the night. 

We got to sleep in, our return flight to the US not until noon.  Once on the flight to D.C. we caught a glimpse of Greenland.
