Our Great Yorkshire Life 13 January 2022: Thursday on Channel 5

Yorkshire Vet Peter Wright has a very special day out planned for wife Lin to celebrate their 35th anniversary. After cooking up a fancy al fresco breakfast, Yorkshire style, he whisks her off to Knaresborough — a place that holds a special in their hearts. And the surprises keep coming as Lin is treated to a glass of fizz on a boat under the famous viaduct before Peter enjoys his own little treat in his favourite pub. In Southowram, Halifax, well-versed, awardwinning 25-year-old farmer Stephen Short needs to get his farm ready for his herd of 65 cows that will soon return from the hills. A new gate and stone gate posts — crafted from Yorkstone — need fitting, but the rounding up of the herd from the exposed hills of Shibden proves more difficult than he ever could imagine. In Scarborough, on the east coast, 78-yearold engineer Trevor Frankland is preparing for the final display of the season. For decades, the crowds have flocked to Peasholm Park lake to enjoy ‘the smallest manned navy in the world’ complete a re-enactment of a famous naval battle. This year, it’s the 1939 Battle of the River Plate. And in the village of Hinderwell, in North Yorkshire, 32-year-old blacksmith artist Katie Ventress is trying to finish her most ambitious design to date – a complicated, 125kg oak tree and dry stone wall sculpture complimented by an unusual centerpiece featuring her client’s passionate love, stoats and weasels. With only six weeks to complete the work, Katie is feeling the heat.
