Considering the place I live, Masham. It’s a rural and very traditional town. It has two animal feed mills, and I know that in a generation, the smallest mill has doubled its output, from 25,000 tones in the late 70’s to 50,000 tones of animal feed in the present day.
Though some of the older residents jealously guard its heritage, such as the sheep fare or the steam rally, the town has gently evolved over time. There is now a larger provision for cars on the main road (silver street).
