Experience the Moors ... NYMA runs guided walks and visits. The walks are led by people keen to share their favourite places, and some have a theme such as botany or geology. The visits are to places of historical, cultural and environmental interest.
Sometimes we do a long-distance route - but in stages! In 2015 members completed 48 miles through the Tabular Hills (from Helmsley to Scarborough) in circular walks, and in 2016 we did several walks linking to the Cleveland Way. In 2017-18 many of our walks have been themed around the 'History Tree' book we've published.
Most walks are 5-7 miles long. (If you want to bring a dog please check with the walk leader.)
We're always keen to add more walks to our programme, so please get in touch if you have a special place you'd like to share.
We also run guided visits and events to places of historical, cultural or ecological interest. Most of these take place in the North York Moors, but sometimes they're to places relevant to the Moors. We do hope you'll join us!
