CALDERDALE joined in the festivities marking Yorkshire Day yesterday.

Proud parties were held to celebrate all things great about the White Rose county.

At Shibden Hall in Halifax, families were entertained with a variety of activities – including creating Yorkshire Roses and Tudor dancing.

The Shibden Mill Inn – recently named Yorkshire’s Favourite Pub – joined in the fun and fed families with a hearty roast dinner and Yorkshire puddings.

The Cooking School at Dean Clough is also on the hunt for amateur chefs to find who cooks the best Yorkshire pudding.
