Son of James Herriot

A fascinating insight into the world of James Herriot

Jim Wight, son of Alf, aka James Herriot, gave a very entertaining talk to Ripon Writers' Group this week. He spoke at length about life with his father and the reasons why he was persuaded to write the only authorised biography. As he joined the veterinary practice and worked alongside his father for many years, he was uniquely qualified to describe 'James Herriot' both as a father and a colleague.

Ripon in North Yorkshire is only 11 miles away from Thirsk, the fictional 'Darrowby', and some of our members know or knew the counterparts of characters in the stories. There is a photo of Jim Wight at the meeting on my website.

The Herriot Museum in Thirsk is well worth a visit for anyone planning a trip to this part of the world. It's in the original building where the James Herriot stories were born and has been lovingly restored. It also houses the only Veterinary Science museum in the UK. More details on my website.
