Info. Wensleydale, Yorkshire Dales National Park, North Yorkshire, England
Wensleydale is part of the Yorkshire Dales in Northern England. The valley is home to historic villages, waterfalls, castles and lots of green hills for walkers to explore. But this beautiful corner of Yorkshire is best known for its local Wensleydale cheese, made famous by the British clay animation franchise 'Wallace & Gromit'. It was a favourite cheese of the cartoon duo, which helped boost sales around the world – some even credit Wallace and his dog Gromit for saving the cheese company from bankruptcy.
