[ezcol_2third]The stunning North Yorkshire Moors surround Whitby to every side. The North York Moors became a National Park on 28 November 1952 and is one of 15 National Parks in the United Kingdom.

The National Park covers an area of 554 square miles (1,436 square kilometres) and has 26 miles of coastline. It contains the largest expanse of heather moorland in England and Wales covering an area of over 44,000 hectares or around one third of the National Park.

Woodland and forests cover about 22% of the National Park and it has one of the largest concentrations of ancient and veteran trees in northern England. The river Esk which flows from the moor tops to the North Sea at Whitby, is the only river in Yorkshire and one of only seven in England that contains the fascinating freshwater pearl mussel.

The North york Moors are clearly an area of outstanding natural beauty, and as such the photo opportunities in this area are simply limitless.
