York part 3

There is always lots of new ideas and activities every year in York. I have recently filmed York’s new dementia-friendly gardens and new project Spark York and a hidden street along the way.

 

The Homestead in York has created a new Dementia friendly garden with a spherical centre water feature, circular seats and flowers.

Along the way, I also found one of York’s hidden streets called Lady Peckitt’s Yard which was named because of Lord Mayor John Peckitt in 1702 and his wife lived here.

Spark York is one the city’s newest attractions. It is currently getting built and will be home to new bars, restaurants, retail units and a garden. The first containers have already arrived and the building is underway to bring together the units.

Wensleydale, Yorkshire

I took a visit to Hawes in Wensleydale and visited three iconic areas. The videos are split into three separate ones,

1) Around Hawes town,

2) The making of Wensleydale Creamery,

3) The Yorkshire Dales Museum.
Part 1, is the center and shows you some of the great spots to come to, and the stunning views around the town including walks and waterfalls.

Part 2, is at Wensleydale Creamery. I was lucky enough to enter the factory and find out how they make this famous cheese, why thousands of people come here every year and how to identify the right Wensleydale Cheese.

Part 3, is at the Yorkshire Dales Museum where it shows and teaches people the history of the Dales and displays some impressive finds including hands-on activities.
