The village of Sowerby

The village of Sowerby links with Thirsk, but retains its own identity and is set in the heart of 'Herriot country', gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the west and the North Yorkshire Moors National Park to the east. Thirsk is also the Darrowby of the late 'James Herriot' (Alf Wight), famous vet and author. On Front Street, which is the main road through the village, an avenue lined with trees, are an old timbered house and the historical village church, and over Cod Beck at the southern end is an old pack horse bridge. Local facilities include the reputable Fantino's restaurant, a public house and a nursing home. There are two schools in Sowerby -Thirsk School on Topcliffe Road, and also a primary school. The village is within easy access of the A19/A168 for commuting both north to Teesside and south to York.
