The North York Moors has been designated as a National Park, not only for the large expanse of heather moorland , but also for the valleys with small villages, stone formhouses with pantile roofs, and fields with stone walls.
The area has been inhabited for thousands of years, and at each stage man has left his mark on the landscape. There are burial mounds, tumulii, standing stones, abbeys, churches, stately homes, museums, steam trains. Iron was mined in Rosedale and alum was manufactured at numerous locations, including Carlton Bank. The landscape is outstanding and the views are breathtaking.
