Herdwick sheep were probably introduced by Norse settlers during the Viking invasions (10th-11th c.). The husbandry of the sheep has been a large factor in shaping the culture & terrain of the Lake District. Beatrix Potter was involved with breeding Herdwicks & bequeathed 15 farms to the National Trust. Per her instructions all continue to graze Herdwick flocks.

Jamie's piccalilli

No ploughman's is complete without this. Let it mellow in a dark cool cupboard for 1 month before eating. This is the best piccalilli I've ever had. Pile it onto your plate with a ploughman's or spice up ham and colcannon with a generous dollop.
