Walking in the Yorkshire Dales

The majority of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, which covers 841 square miles, is in North Yorkshire, with a sizeable area in Cumbria and a small part in Lancashire. The national park status was designated in 1954 and the westward extension into Lancashire and Cumbria occurred in 2016. The Yorkshire Dales is famous for outstanding scenery, unspoilt countryside, diverse wildlife habitats, and a rich cultural heritage. It includes some of the finest limestone scenery in the UK, as well as remote heather moorland tops, picturesque stone-built villages and traditional farming landscapes of field barns, drystone walls and flower-rich hay meadows. Visit Yorkshire Dales Online and Yorkshire Dales National Park to find out more.
