Many visitors from the USA each year enjoy the connection and make their pilgrimage as do many visitors to Herriot Country who have read James Herriot’s books and seen the films and TV series All Creatures Great and Small.

You‘ll learn about the families that lived here starting with the Calverts until 1722, then the Crowes until 1868, the Carpenters until 1904 and ending with the Talbots until 1971 the last family member, Bridget Talbot, gave the Hall and estate to a charity to preserve Kiplin for the Nation.
