Ryedale district  X 

Ryedale 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 582 square miles in and around the Vale of Pickering.

Part of the North York Moors National Park makes up a large northern portion of the district while to the east, the majority of the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is within the Ryedale district. The south of the district reaches to the edges of the Yorkshire Wolds and the area to the south of the River Derwent was part of the historic East Riding of Yorkshire before local government reorganisation in 1974.

The administrative centre of Ryedale is the market town of Malton. The district also includes other market towns and dozens of small villages which are mostly in agricultural areas.

Despite the vast area over which it is spread, the population of Richmondshire is the second-smallest of any Yorkshire district authority at around 55,000. The population is around half that when the district was formed in 1974 as some of its most populated areas, surrounding York, were lost in local government changes in 1996 which saw part of Ryedale absorbed into an expanded City of York as it became a unitary authority area.
