    As one of those who bangs on about websites, from time to time, it seems only fair to highlight this request by Survey Monkey, on behalf of the Wensleydale Railway are inviting feedback on their website. The link was posted today and is lurking on WR's Facebook page (no login needed). If you need a particular reason to participate, with a chance to win a family ticket to travel behind Tornado.

    Excellent review of the afternoon tea service embedded in that report, worth considering.

    Well I read the afternoon tea review and was quite disappointed with it. The clotted cream debate was avoided by both Devon and Cornwall traditions being taken. ;) However, the pleasure soon went when I saw cheddar mentioned. Cheddar cheese in Wensleydale? - a place where a very fine cheese is made. A very great cheese. especially with a fine dry, white wine. Besides, what is good enough for both Wallace and Gromit, should be good enough for anyone.
    Leave the WSR to its cheddar and put local cheeses on your menu! You might even stretch a point with Lancashire and Northumberland cheeses, :D

    Fair point the excellent creamery in Hawes is always worth a visit when there, the beer they produce is good as well.
