Yorkshire Day!

Yorkshire Day!


Yorkshire is synonymous with spectacular scenery, a stunning coastline, historic abbeys and castles, friendly people, and fabulous food.

Yorkshire Day is a relatively new tradition, dating back to 1975. It is celebrated on 1st August every year and began as a defiant way to celebrate the county’s history and heritage, following Government changes abolishing Yorkshire’s three traditional ‘Ridings’ which saw parts of the historic county transferred to Humberside and Lancashire.

Typically, Yorkshire Day involves an array of celebrations, activities, and events... and large amounts of traditional Yorkshire food.

The Team at KNW Training are celebrating this idyllic and colourful county by sharing photographs of some of their favourite elements of Yorkshire. They are joining together for a buffet lunch of traditional fare including: Yorkshire puddings with golden syrup; homemade smoked mackerel pate; local pork pies; local quiche; pease pudding and Yorkshire ham; homemade scones; homemade ginger cake; Yorkshire (swiss) roll and rhubarb crumble cake; local sausages; and homemade ginger cordial.
