Who (or What?) is Your Yorkshire Icon?

Our wonderful county of Yorkshire is an incredibly distinctive place,  full of amazing characters, stories, places, and food.  For its 75th anniversary, the Dalesman Magazine is asking people to vote for their Yorkshire icons, to choose the top 75.

As you might expect, many of the suggested icons have connections with the University, Bradford, or our collections.   For instance, The Dalesman and Bill Mitchell, Harold Wilson (our first Chancellor), J.B. Priestley and of course sheep and WOOL (which made Bradford and the University).

More to follow when the final 75 are revealed!

PS This covers the whole of Yorkshire, not just the Dales!
