The North York Moors, located in North-Eastern England, are a large tract of heather moors interrupted by valleys of rural calm. Eastward they extend to the coast where we walk through small fishing villages including Robin Hood’s Bay. Among the moors lie small stone cottages and the beautiful monastic ruins of Rievaulx Abbey. Superb walking trails are over former railway lines and packhorse trails where ancient stone crosses mark the routes used by travelers for centuries. Our base is at Whitby, an interesting fishing port with a ruined abbey and a Captain Cook museum.
