history & heritage North Yorkshire has an undoubted richness of history and heritage. From early Christian waymark crosses on the North York Moors, to ruined abbeys, historic industrial workings, stately homes, churches, chapels and... well we could go on but you are probably starting to get the picture by now. It is nearly impossible to travel across North Yorkshire without becoming inspired by legacy that time has left. Castles with moats and ramparts, thatched cottages seemingly untouched in centuries, bridges and stately homes combine with stunning backdrops to reveal life as it was lived in days gone by. Industrial heritage is exemplified by the Lime Kilns in Rosedale. The fishing villages and towns along the historic coastline, even Fylingdales early warning station on the edge of the moors has its place in time comprising part of this regions unique history and heritage. But be careful! Travel too fast and youâ€™ll miss it. Linger a while and soak up the heritage that belongs to us all. Better still take a walk, a cycle ride, a river cruise or a horse ride and experience the heritage today as it was built for yesterday.
