Richmondshire district  X 

Richmondshire is one of the seven large district authorities which make up the modern administrative county of North Yorkshire. It covers a huge area of around 509 square miles in the north-west of the county.

Over half the district is formed of the northern part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park which includes the communities of Wensleydale and Swaledale. A small portion of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is also within the district.

The administrative centre is the town of Richmond. The district also has a few small market towns and dozens of villages.

Despite the vast area over which it is spread, the population of Richmondshire is the smallest of any Yorkshire district authority at around 53,000.
