  • Interviewees

    Terence Maw 

    Terence has farming in his blood. His grandfather was a shepherd, then his father started farming in his own right, and Terence has carried on the tradition. He runs his mixed lowland farm at the foot of the North Yorkshire Moors, with crops, cattle and sheep.  He is an active member of the local community and trains young people in the way of the land.

     

    Barry Brown 

    In 1872, William Fortune founded the famous Fortune’s smokehouse in Whitby. The smokehouse still in its original Henrietta Street location has been passed down through the family, so that today it is run by the fifth generation of the Fortune family.

     

    Michael Shaw

    Michael was born in the rugged North Yorkshire fishing town of Whitby where observation of surroundings and climate change come as second nature. Having worked in the photographic world all his life, Michael only recently took up photography seriously, prior to this, taking and developing his own black and white photographs in The Sutcliffe Gallery darkroom as a teenager in the 1970s. Digital format photography was the catalyst which inspired him to seek his own style.

     

    Reverend Adrian Gatrill 

    Formerly a Wing Commander in the Royal Air Force, Adrian is now a Chaplain and volunteer signalman at the North York Moors Railway. He became interested in trains as a young boy and couldn’t think of anything better than combining his hobby with doing something worthwhile. He enjoys meeting people from all walks of life and sees the railway as a manifestation of the skills given to humanity by God.
