There’s bags of old-fashioned charm about the Stripey Badger bookshop on Grassington’s main square, which is why it caught the eye of the All Creatures Great and Small filming crew. As part of the transformation of the Dales village into James Herriot’s ‘Darrowby’, the Stripey Badger played G F Endleby Grocers.
Throughout the series, books in the shop window were temporarily replaced with pre-war food packaging and the shopfront was given a 1930s-era paint job. It is now back to the usual business of selling books and welcoming visitors to the adjoining café. If you are planning a visit, drop by to pick up a souvenir edition of one of James Herriot’s beloved books.
