North Pennines

The North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is one of the most remote and unspoilt places in England. It lies between the national parks of the Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland and at almost 770 square miles is the second largest AONB in the United Kingdom. The landscape is one of open heather moors and peatlands, attractive dales and hay meadows, tumbling upland rivers, wonderful woods and intriguing imprints of a mining and industrial past. In recognition of its special qualities the area is also a UNESCO Global Geopark – highlighting its globally important Earth heritage.
