AN original James Herriot manuscript is to take part in a national project being run by the BBC and the British Museum.
The World of James Herriot, the North Yorkshire-based shrine to Alf Wight who wrote the books, has supplied the work.
Staff at the museum on Kirkgate, Thirsk, in the vet’s former surgery are taking part in The History of the World project.
They have submitted a manuscript from 1966 by the well loved author which eventually became the best selling book If Only They Could Talk.

The new Nick Trout book came out earlier this month.
Love Is the Best Medicine: What Two Dogs Taught One Veterinarian about Hope, Humility, and Everyday Miracles is Dr. Nick’s second book, after his book published last year, Tell Me Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing, and Hope in My Life as an Animal Surgeon.
Has anyone read the new one yet and how does it compare to his first one? Most reviews so far have been good, but not great. I’m curious as to what other people think.
