Long Description:
All Creatures Great and Small dramatizes the work of a practice of vets in the Yorkshire Dales, based on the books of Alfred Wight. The vets, James Herriot, Siegfried Farnon and Tristan Farnon usually deal with large farm animals, and larger than life Yorkshire farmers.

The veterinary practice is based at Skeldale House in the fictional dales village of Darrowby. In reality the dales village used in the filming was Askrigg. The local public house in the series was the Drover’s Arms, and was frequented quite often by young Tristan Farnon.

Whilst the inside of the Drovers, a stage set, was often seen, the outside was rarely seen, except for occasional episodes and the opening sequence for the later episodes.
