Getting Out And About

The free annual visitor guide to the North York Moors National Park will be available from Half Term Week, 18 February.

The 48-page, full-colour magazine is packed full of fascinating features about local heritage, landscape, culture and wildlife. This year, amongst other stories, the magazine covers the 150th anniversary of Grosmont’s village shop (the oldest independent co-op in the UK), the 10th anniversary of the National Park’s own ‘Inspired by’ art gallery, and the artisan food and craft producers of the North York Moors. It also includes a full calendar of events for 2017, as well as details of market and show dates, and sights and attractions in both the North York Moors and Howardian Hills.

You can pick up a copy at The Moors National Park Centre, Danby, and Sutton Bank National Park Centre, as well as at tourist information centres, visitor attractions and local businesses across the North of England. The magazine can also be viewed online or ordered from the National Park website, at http://www.northyorkmoors.org.uk/visiting/see-and-do/out-and-about

Julian Brown, Interpretation Officer at the North York Moors National Park Authority, said: “We hope people find something to inspire them in this year’s Out and About, whether it’s something new to see or do, a visit to a favourite place, or an activity or walk at one of our National Park Centres. There’s so much to do here, it would be a shame to miss any of it, but with your copy of Out and About, you don’t need to!”

The North York Moors National Park

The North York Moors is a beautiful landscape of stunning moorland, ancient woodland and historic sites. Created on 28 November 1952 it became Britain’s sixth national park. Covering an area of 554 square miles (1,436 square kilometres) the National Park has 26 miles of coastline, two national nature reserves, 840 Scheduled Monuments and over 3,000 listed buildings, attracting an estimated 7.6 million visitors a year.

The National Park has two visitor centres, The Moors National Park Centre, Danby and Sutton Bank National Park Centre, providing opportunities for cycling, walking, eating, picnicking, shopping, crafts and wildlife-watching. The centre in Danby also houses the inspired by… gallery, which features regularly changing exhibitions by artists who draw their inspiration from the North York Moors.

The North York Moors National Park Authority works with a huge variety of people to care for this beautiful corner of Yorkshire, providing apprenticeships and volunteering opportunities with nearly 14% of staff being apprentices from local families.
