Yorkshire Facts

For Silvine social media, 2019

Silvine is a Stationery company based in Yorkshire. For 1st August (Yorkshire Day), I ran a series of social media posts of facts about Yorkshire, using Silvine stationery for sets.

(If you're curious:

  • Yorkshire's three national parks - the North York Moors, Yorkshire Dales & The Peak District - account for a third of the total area of national parks in the UK.

  • If Yorkshire were an independent country, it would have finished 12th on the league table in the 2012 Olympics- with 7 Golds, 2 Silvers & 3 Bronze.

  • The Blackburn Type D is the oldest flying aeroplane in Britain and it was made in Leeds, West Yorkshire. It was built just a decade after the Wright Brothers’ famous first flight.)
