A LINDAL-BASED firm has been invited to a Herdwick sale which Prince Charles will be attending next week.


Lake District Farmers will attend the invitation-only event at the J36 Rural Auction Centre at Crooklands, on Wednesday April 9.

HRH The Prince of Wales will tour the one-year-old centre, see an auction of prime Herdwick lambs, and meet local apprentices.
