Established in 1970, the same year as Alf Wight’s (James Herriot) first book, If Only They Could Talk, Helen Midgley, Grassington offers a first class shopping experience for stylish comfortable quality shoes and clothes that will always be to meet your individual needs. Quality brands such as Mephisto, Waldlaufer, Panama Jack, Drapers, Rhode and many others ensure your individual fit. With a worldwide reputation for customer service, it’s must-visit retail experience when you visit Herriot Country.
It is rather likely that Siegfried Farnon would have had his eye on some of the attire available at Helen Midgley as he was certainly a character of quality. Aptly, when filming for Channel 5’s All Creatures Great and Small, Grassington becomes the fictional town of Darrowby, and the shop is transformed into CA Handley Bookseller.
