Things to do in Masham, Northumberland
Masham is a historic town - a natural gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. A weekly market has been held here since 1393 and in December a special Victorian market is followed by a torchlight procession.
Masham is well known for its food and beverage specialities. Regional delicacies include creamy Yorkshire curd tarts and Wensleydale cheese, produced just a few miles away. Both Black Sheep and Theakston's have their breweries and visitor centres here, where you can enjoy guided tours and sample the ales.
