Yorkshire Day

Yorkshire should be celebrated 365 days a year, however we have to settle for 1st August, but why?

August 1st was chosen as it has special significance in the County’s history. On this date in 1759, soldiers in Yorkshire regiments who had fought in the battle of Minden in Germany, picked roses from the nearby fields as a tribute to their fallen comrades.

Yorkshire Day started the night before for me with a scrumptious 6 course tasting menu at my local award-winning pub, the Queen o’t’ owd Thatch in South Milford, celebrating food from England’s greatest county.

This is my celebration of Yorkshire Day showcasing my special places in this, UK’s largest fantastic county, Yorkshire

‘We are all as poor as church mice’ Robert Thompson’s legacy in North Yorkshire

I love spotting these delightful ‘Mouseman’ mice carved in oak all over Yorkshire, lots in Ampleforth Abbey, and this one I found on the bar at the Black Swan at Oldstead while I was on my Michelin adventure.
