north york moors national park
Covering nearly one eighth of England, Yorkshire is home to two National Parks and part of another, the only County in England to boast such an exceptional fact. North Yorkshire hosts the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks, two areas of spectacularly different scenery but sharing a common theme of preserving the region’s natural and built history and heritage. Conservation, preservation and recreation are the National Park’s watch words but don’t think for a minute though that the National Parks are just about the ‘old days’. Both National Parks are ever increasingly becoming home to niche crafts and industries like bee keeping, brewing, glass blowing, game keeping, cheese making and so much more. The villages and towns in the Parks are crafted from local stone with pantiled roofs mellowed with time and narrow country lanes draw you down to visit places that time forgot. Can you really miss all this?
