Harlingen is approx 12 kilometres south-west of Franeker and approx 30 kilometres west of Leeuwarden. When the Dutch vessels retreated towards Terschelling, the English followed, destroyed 150 Dutch vessels, and landed in the harbour of West-Terschelling.

16 September 2011 Named as ‘One of the Greatest Drives in Britain’ by the AA, The A686, which runs from Penrith, through Alston (across the ‘roof’ of England) and down onto the A69 just after Haydon Bridge, is very popular particularly in the summer with bikers, and is great fun to drive. We found this road by pure chance as we were driving to Thirsk and decided to take this route through the Moors.
