We mentioned the 50th anniversary reissue of Marie Hartley & Joan Ingilby’s book ‘Life & Tradition in the Yorkshire Dales’ in our last blog post. We got the chance to have a look round the accompanying exhibition at the Dales Countryside Museum yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed seeing their handwritten notes and sketches about dairying in the National Park.
There were also examples of the dairying artefacts that they collected themselves and later donated to the Dales Countryside Museum. We particularly liked the pottery stand churn for making butter.
The exhibition runs until 3 July 2018 and is well worth a visit. Find out more details on the Dales Countryside Museum website
