Drop in to Wainright's yard to make your own woolly 'Spot' to round up the felted flock with up for arts Cumbria, Jennie Dennett, you'll recognise her sporting dalmation trousers.
Look out for the famous Spot the Dog competition in the Westmorland Gazette. Unique to Cumbria, you have to mark the exact spot where you think the sheepdog might have been in a photograph of a flock of sheep. Do you have the shepherding skills to try?
The Westmorland Gazette began life as the 1818 as the Westmorland Gazette & Advertiser. In 1818 its circulation was only a few hundred. By the 1830’s it had a huge coverage, with reports and readers covering an area from Barrow across to South Lakes, North Lancashire to Grasmere as well as to the sheep farmers of Westmorland and North Yorkshire.
In 2008 the Westminster Press, including the Gazette was sold to Newsquest Media Group. Moving production from the site where Booths stands in Kendal, the pages are now designed on computer and printed in Bradford since 2008, yet the editorial work is still carried out in Wainwright’s yard today.
