Seventy years of North York Moors National Park November 28, 2022

The North York Moors National Park in North Yorkshire is celebrating 70 years.

The National Park was created on November 28 in 1952, the sixth of ten established in England and Wales in the 1950s. It extends across an area of 554 square miles (1,435 square kilometres).

One of the three National Parks of Yorkshire, it offers some amazing scenery across its wide expanse of remote heather moorland stretching to its dramatic Heritage Coast.

Within its area are historic stateley homes, remains of castles and abbeys, attractive villages and market towns and the longest of Yorkshire's heritage railways.
