Artist's Description

On a recent weekend trip to stay with some friends in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, we all decided to go out for an afternoon to Murton Park, home of the Yorkshire Museum of Farming . The site is fabulous with an array of old tractors and farm machinery, as well as an accurate Viking settlement and replica Roman fort. Amongst all the displays, there was this gem. It is a Shepherd’s Hut.
“Shepherds stayed in such huts during lambing time. They could keep a constant watch on their flocks both day and night. Although sparsely furnished, there was usually a bunk to sleep on, and a stove for warmth and cooking food. The hut would be mounted on wheels for easy transportation to fresh grazing. The Yorkshire shepherd’s huts were common on the Wolds in the 19th and early 20th centuries. This hut was built for their shepherds by the Quarton family of Kexby, on the banks of the River Derwent. It is mounted on reaper wheels.”
