blank image Just over 20 miles from Richmond in picturesque Wensleydale, the market town of Askrigg (or ash ridge) is famous as the setting for the much-loved television series ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ about a fictitious country vet, James Herriott.
The series was based on the novels of a real-life veterinary surgeon, Alf Wright, who worked in Thirsk.

Cringley House doubled as Herriott’s home in the BBC series.

Beyond lies internationally important bog and heathland.

A short walk leads to the waterfall of Mill Gill Force.
