Set in the heart of Northern England, this rural landscape formed the backdrop of James Herriot's book and PBS TV series "All Creatures Great & Small." Starting in the Northern Swaledale where Herriot first entered the Dales in 1939, to the Southernmost Airedale where I spent my formative years.

This presentation includes photos and descriptions of the dales from medieval times, to the present day. 

Born in Yorkshire, England, Andrew Pighills is an accomplished stone artisan, gardener, and horticulturist. He received his formal horticulture training with The Royal Horticultural Society at Harlow Carr Gardens in Harrogate Yorkshire and has spent 31 years creating gardens and building dry stone walls in his native England, in and around the spectacular Yorkshire Dales and the English Lake District. Today, Andrew is one of the ever-growing numbers of US-based professional members of The Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain. Having moved to the United States more than ten years ago, he now continues this venerable craft here in the US, building dry stone walls, stone structures, and creating gardens throughout New England and beyond.
