---------------James Alfred Wight was a veterinery surgeon and author of the James Herriot books, he lived and worked at number 23 Kirkgate Thirsk. The stories are mainly his experiences, he could not used his own name, so he had to use a pen name. Watching fooball one day, he saw a goalkeeper called James Herriot and chose that. The BBC Tv series "All Creatures Great and Small" portrayed his stories as a vet. --The museum is on a ground floor and a upper floor, the lift was under repair so out of action, had to use the stairs ,so i got half price entry. (A Yorkshire bargain). I followed the route round museum. The start is the dinning room,sitting room, dispensary, consulting room, breakfast room, kitchen and scullery. The garden with the statue of Alf Wight. In the Fold Yard is a short interesting film on Alf Wight.,also in the Fold Yard is the Farriers workshop. The 1934 Austin Severn car that stars in the opening titles of the TV series is on show.--There is a reproduced TV studio.--The museum as toilets and refreshment machines. There was news of a new TV series in 2020 to be shown on channel 5 in Britain and PSB in USA. ==== I had a great day thanks Sally.
