An alpaca breeder who pioneered their introduction into the UK is packing up her business after thirty years of breeding them at Newby near Penrith.
Pat Bentley is having her remaining alpacas auctioned at Borderway Mart in Carlisle on the 5th of May.
Inspired by a visit to Peru in the 1970s, at one point Pat had a herd of 200 alpacas.
47 animals are going under the hammer.
