HALTWHISTLE is to pay a lasting tribute to one of the district's best-known farmers, Arthur Yeats, who died in November.
A clock, dedicated to his memory, will be erected at the Haltwhistle Masonic Lodge.
Mr Yeats, who lived at Bardon Mill, was a member of the lodge for 35 years.
A world renowned Bluefaced Leicester expert, the flock he and his wife, Caroline, established at Mill House, Bardon Mill, was recognised as one of the best in the country.

The Miners' Hall at West Wylam was officially re-opened after undergoing extensive renovation.
Built as a cinema with a sloping floor 15 years previously, a ladies' cloakroom had been added and the floor levelled to turn it into a dance hall.
The work cost £500, half of which came from the Northumberland Miners' Association.
