As the gateway to the beautiful Yorkshire Dale of Wensleydale, the market town of Masham has attracted visitors for centuries.

Steeped in history, it boasts one of the oldest markets in the country, first appointed by charter in 1250 and still a bustling community hub every Wednesday and Saturday when it charms visitors and locals alike.

You will be taken aback by the grandeur of the market square. The elegant Georgian houses date from a time when a booming sheep industry made the area very wealthy.
