First shot of my Easter break over in the stunning Yorkshire Dales.
Askrigg in the heart of Wensleydale, the unassuming little hamlet which fell into the worldwide media spotlight when it became the location for filming All Creatures Great and Small, the TV series inspired by the stories of Yorkshire vet James Herriott. Skeldale House can be seen opposite the thirteenth century church.
Askrigg was also noted for hand knitting and clock making and the eagle-eyed among us may find the ancient bull-baiting ring which is still set in the village square next to the market cross and stone pump.
