 North York Moors Walks

The North York Moors (often incorrectly referred to as the North Yorkshire Moors) is a National Park stretching from Osmotherly in the west to the East Coast and from just south of Guisborough in the north to the edge of the Vale of Pickering in the south over 500 square miles. It has one of the biggest areas of moorland in the UK.

As well as moorland, there is woodland, pretty valleys and coastal scenery.

It is peppered with antiquities from a multitude of ancient crosses across the moors to ancient abbeys.

Many of the villages seem untouched by time and farming is still a major source of prosperity for the area. However, tourism is now also very important. The coast provides all the usual source of seaside enjoyment but inland too there is much to see.

It is home to the famous North Yorkshire Moors Railway, an enthusiast run organisation which runs steam trains from Pickering to Whitby.
