T is for Thirsk

Thirsk is a market town in the Vale of York, Yorkshire.  With its cobbled square, big clock and olde worlde  shops and cafes, it’s as picturesque as they come.

Home to the author  of James Herriot; is house and surgery has now been converted into the 'World of James Herriot' interactive Museum.

Thirsk was also the birthplace of the Thomas Lord, the founder of Lords Cricket ground.


Well worth a visit!

  3. I loved the James Herriot books but had forgotten where they were set. Maybe it's time to read them again?

  4. Lovely post Linda on Thirsk, thank you! What a rich history! Lovely photos too and I also did not know that this was James Herriot's birthplace.

  6. Hey, I am with you. Retired and exploring life. Blogging... Just found your blog today, so I'll try to read some back issues.

  7. I loved James Herriot. I know someone with the last name Thirsk, so this post jumped out at me.
