Detectives say the items, including a blue, zircon cluster ring, along with earrings, lockets, bracelets and a gold and silver engagement ring bought in the 1940s were taken from a house in Middleton Tyas near Richmond.

They believe the items were taken between 3.15pm and 5.30pm on Monday 16 May when burglars forced their way into a house.

The jewellery has great sentimental value as many of the items were gifts from the victim's late husband and late mother.

Historic buildings exhibition to open in North Yorkshire

A touring exhibition highlighting historic buildings in the Yorkshire Dales National Park will open at The Station in Richmond today.

'Every Picture Tells a Story' is made up of photographs of a range of old buildings that have been selected by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority's Historic Environment Team. The images show the quality and variety of some of the historic buildings and features and they were originally taken to inform the day-to-day work of the team.

The exhibition, which was previously shown at the National Park Authority's offices in Bainbridge, will be on display in The Station until February 3.

We hope these images will inspire visitors to take a fresh look at the built environment of the Yorkshire Dales and to appreciate better the significance and fragility of this part of our cultural heritage.
