When James Herriot created the town of Darrowby in his books, he combined features from Richmond, Thirsk, Leyburn and Middleham... and some from his own fertile imagination.
You can read more about Herriot's adventures in Richmondshire at this new web-site. You can also download a guide to the Herriot Trail (see thumbnail extract on left).
