Thirsk..James Herriot country.
Being a great James Herriot fan I had to visit this delightful little village to see for myself the home of Alf Wight...the author of those wonderful novels.
I was a little disapointed however as I had thought that the filming of the series had taken place here which is not the case. I did however get to explore Alf's house and out buildings and enjoy some of the surrounding Yorkshire villages.
It was a nice little place with a thriving village centre full of lovely pubs and cafe's. The place had loads of character and friendly people.
