My Yorkshire: Roger Tempest

Roger Tempest, 45, is the 31st generation of an unbroken 900-year male line of Tempests to live at Broughton Hall, near Skipton. The present hall is 400 years old, the earlier one was set on fire in a feud with Skipton Castle.

When he inherited the hall and its 3,000 acres, Roger decided a new approach was needed, and set up the award-winning Rural Solutions, an innovative business park. More than 500 people work there now. He is married to the artist, Kitty North.
