The North York Moors – such a special place
Some of Yorkshire’s best-loved villages fall within the boundaries of that most special of locations – the dramatic North York Moors National Park. Stretching from above Scarborough in the south, to just beyond Staithes in the north, and inland to Helmsley, Osmotherley and Kilburn, the park’s many treasures include, on the Heritage Coast, Ravenscar, Robin Hood’s Bay, Sandsend and Runswick Bay; and inland, gorgeous moorland villages such as Rosedale Abbey, Hutton le Hole and Danby, all scattered with spectacular and world-known heritage sites, including the Abbeys at Rievaulx and Byland, and Helmsley Castle. And did you know that the Park is home to one of the world’s most popular heritage railways, running between Pickering and Whitby, and to a leading dark matter research facility at Boulby?
