Yorkshire’s magazine is full of the joys of spring… We’re in Baldersdale to learn of the early life of Hannah Hauxwell, in Sheffield we find the origins of Doctor Who’s favourite sweet, the Jelly Baby, and at RHS Harlow Carr in Harrogate we meet an artist Painting the Seasons.

In Marsden we discover the origins of the Cuckoo Festival, and at Askrigg we revisit Life and Tradition in the Yorkshire Dales.

The picture-perfect village of Appletreewick is the subject of this month’s Drawn in Yorkshire and a reader shares their Best day out around Ingleton.

We also head to the coast for a Walk from Saltburn, while Wild Yorkshire focuses on the fossils of Scarborough.

Settle is the location for a new series, Wickets ’n’ Snickets, and to round off a busy edition we chat to Mexborough’s most famous son, Brian Blessed.
