Just back from our annual jaunt up north to do another 15 miles walking the ‘Yorkshire Wolds Way’ (we should finish it in about 3 years at this rate !) and this time we made an excursion to the market town of Thirsk in North Yorkshire. I had found a reference on the BBC ‘History Of The World’ site to there being a Golden PAN Award belonging to James Alfred Wright, better know as James Herriot, in the ‘World Of James Herriot’ museum in the town so a visit became a priority. I contacted Ian Ashton, the MD, and he kindly got the award out of safe storage as it is not normally on display. I could not only see one at last close up but best of all I actually got to hold it. Thanks to all at the museum which is well worth a visit with room after room of fascinating material.
