Winter in Wensleydale

Well-known local press photographer Frank Knowles has sent us an archive of his wonderful photographs for the project, some of which record the efforts made to get milk though to the Express Dairy during the snowy winter of 1963 which we thought we’d share with you this Christmas Eve. If you’d like to see more of Frank’s photos then visit his exhibition at Tennant’s in Leyburn.

Happy Christmas to you all and we look forward to sharing more of the heritage of dairying in Wensleydale with you next year.
