Join Andrew Pighills for a presentation set in the heart of Northern England, this rural landscape forms the backdrop of James Herriot’s book and PBS TV series “All Creatures Great & Small”. Starting in Northern Swaledale, where Herriot first entered the dales in 1939, to the southernmost, Airedale, where Mr. Pighills spent his formative years, this presentation includes spectacular photos, and descriptions of the dales from the medieval, 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.
