LITERARY icon James Herriot has been honoured by the recently reopened country inn where he was a regular.

The Black Bull, at Moulton, has been refurbished by Provenance Inns and marked Yorkshire Day by immortalising North Yorkshire author Alf Wight when the James Herriot private dining room was opened. Mr Wight’s son, Jim, and daughter, Rosie Page, attended the event, which included a champagne barbecue on the inn’s terrace.

Mr Wight celebrated his golden wedding anniversary with wife Joan at the Black Bull three years before his death in 1995. The writer is famed for his collections of stories inspired by his early veterinary surgeon experiences in rural North Yorkshire which were later adapted for feature films.
