,   Thursday, 26 March 2015
The North York Moors is a special place, protected as a National Park for everyone to enjoy.

              

There is a great diversity of landscapes, with wide sweeps of open heather moorland, distinctive dales, valley's and dramatic headlands and hill sides. There is an abundance of forest and ancient woodlands, that are rich in wildlife.

This special habitat with the plants and animals it supports, is of national and international importance. An area of 44,000 hectares of moorland has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its heathland habitat and breeding birds.

In the UK the most beautiful and unspoilt stretches of coast have been given special status known as 'Heritage Coasts' to ensure they are cared for by local authorities and government agencies.
