The Sunday Times Rich List 2023 has been revealed and 171 billionaires have been recorded in the UK with a combined wealth of £683.856bn.
The list featured three people with links to Yorkshire including Andy Currie, the director of Chemicals company Ineos, who is the richest man with links to Yorkshire as he was born in Doncaster.
It’s estimated by The Sunday Times that Currie is worth a massive £9.176bn as of 2023 up £7.058bn from last year.
The second richest with a link to Yorkshire is Malcolm Healey and his family, the founder of the kitchen company Wren Kitchens. It’s estimated he’s worth £1.6bn in 2023 up £250m from last year.
And in third place, Robert Miller, his daughter Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece, and their family are listed as the third wealthiest with links to Yorkshire estimated to be worth £1.583bn, down from £617m from last year.
Miller was born in America and founded DFS Group, which deals in duty-free shopping, fashion, and finance (not sofas). Miller owns Gunnerside estate in Yorkshire which spans 36,000 acres.
Miller’s farm, a sprawling 2,000-acre working farm located at the head of the River Swale in the Yorkshire Dales was made famous by the Owen family who shot to fame with the popular Channel 5 show Our Yorkshire Farm.
The Owens and their nine kids have been farming up in the Swaledale region for 25 years on the billion-pound estate-owned Ravenseat Farm.
The farm is an hour’s walk west of Keld and is also halfway up the Coast to Coast walk.
