The Parish of
Swaledale with  Arkengarthdale
On-farm cheese-making was once widespread in the Dales and in the Middle Ages monks made cheese from both ewe’s and cow’s milk.
Although perhaps not so well-known as Wensleydale, the creamy, tangy Swaledale cheese is now once more being produced commercially, although in relatively small quantities.  
Say Cheese....

Marrick Priory

was a Benedictine Nunnery founded in 1154

The Priory was the scene of a romantic episode when 19 year old Isabella Beaufort was given refuge here by the nuns.

 

Isabella was a Court favourite who had attracted the   attentions of Henry Vlll but who had no wish to be another of his many wives.

 

Seeking to put as much mileage between Henry and herself, she had fled London in disguise.

 

She later married a local nobleman and they lived happily ever after - unlike the Priory which was dissolved by Henry’s agents in 1540

Love

     Marriage....
