Barries ices have served the area in and around Richmond for over forty years, starting up in 1968 Barrie first rented a van from the local ice cream supplier and operated in Catterick Camp, Colburn and villages in lower Wensleydale, he then went on to purchase his first Commer Mister Softee van in 1970. Also in the early seventies he was successful in getting a contract to operate at the waterfall car park, known as the Foss in Richmond. A trailer was originally used on this site until in 1990, when when a purpose built stone kiosk was erected. We also operate a static purpose built trailer in the market place in Richmond.




New Ice Cream Kiosk in Market Place (9 Aug 2006)





Richmond Mayor, Cllr. Linda Curran, officially opened the new ice cream Kiosk in Richmond Market Place.

Having opened the new ice cream kiosk, The Mayor served one of the first ice creams to fellow councillor Sheila Blacklock under the watchful eye of owner Mr Proctor. Mrs Curran commented: “The kiosk is an asset to the market place and the new design fits much better in our historic market place.”

This new purpose-built kiosk, situated next to the town’s obelisk, replaces the traditional ice cream van that has been parked there for many years. The design and colour scheme was chosen by Mr Barry Proctor of Barries Ices with approval from the Town Council.


The new Ice Cream Kiosk is now situated in Market Place (9 Aug 2006)

Mr Proctor, Richmond Meet President of 1995 and 2009, has worked closely with the Green Howards Museum in the past to revive the legend of the Drummer Boy and therefore decided to have a painting of the legend on the back of the kiosk. “I think the history and traditions in Richmond are important to the town and I wanted the kiosk to highlight the Drummer Boy story,” he said.
