Once again there is to be great excitement in Masham, make a date for Saturday 29 April 2017 and join in the fun as the Tour de Yorkshire makes its way through the town on its way to Ripon and finally on to Harrogate. Whilst you’re there, take a little time to visit the family run breweries, the Black Sheep Brewery and Theakstons, have a meal in The White Bear located just by the Black Sheep. Wander round the interesting market place with its independent shops, hostelries and cafés, the glass makers and galleries. There’ll probably be a market on that day and possibly even a small fair ground for the children to enjoy after or before the Tour makes an appearance. Take a stroll along the river side, go to the park, perhaps a little further afield be delighted amongst the wildflowers in Hackfall Woods search out the follies and fountain. Explore the many villages nearby, Grewelthorpe, Kirkby Malzeard, Winksley, Galphay to name but a few.
