​Masham boasts one of the largest market squares in England, famous for its sheep sales where in the past as many as 70,000 sheep were sold each year.

A spokesperson said:

"Masham is a wonderful market town which is worth visiting at any time of year, as well as during the Sheep Fair!

"It's also a great base for exploring the beautiful Yorkshire Dales."
