THE Dales Countryside Museum at Hawes say they're milking a new exhibition for all it's worth. The Dairy Dales display has been a major success for the museum bringing together information and photographs of the history of the dairy industry in the Yorkshire Dales. Oral recordings of the people who have worked in the industry are also available and can be heard in the museum.

Dairy demonstrations are being held on Tuesdays throughout October as part of the event. Jane Sammells of Curriculum Kitchen, an expert in the heritage industry, is running the series of dairy demonstrations including butter and cheese making.

They are being held on Tuesday October 8, 15, 22 and 29 from 1pm to 4pm. Contact for info.
