Last year, the west­erly side of the York­shire Dales and the east­erly bor­der of the Lake Dis­trict were both ex­panded. Though they’re still of­fi­cially sep­a­rate, these two na­tional parks now form one mas­sive spread of open space, the big­gest ex­panse of pro­tected coun­try­side in Eng­land. This se­ries about liv­ing and work­ing in the area kicks off with a visit to Bleak Bank Farm in the Dales, where the Daw­son fam­ily are cross­ing all their fin­gers as the lambs go off to auc­tion. And in But­ter­mere in Cum­bria, the lo­cals are pre­par­ing the hound trail – a form of dog rac­ing with its very own lo­cal flavour.
