The North York Moors is an upland area in north-eastern Yorkshire, England. It contains one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the United Kingdom. The area was designated as a National Park in 1952, through the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act 1949. Covering an area of 554 sq mi (1,430 km2), the National Park has a population of 23,380. It is administered by the North York Moors National Park Authority, whose head office is based in Helmsley.
Ian Hardcastle and Tamzin Lafford successfully completed the 13-mile trek to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society on 22nd July – a day when the weather was mild and only slightly damp, which was a blessing considering the forecast of heavy rain! The event was well organised, well provisioned and there was a really good-natured atmosphere. The few hundred walkers taking part had, by the start of the event, raised over £290 000 towards the target of £300 000. Many thanks to all you generous souls who have contributed – you are precious. If anyone else would like to help the Alzheimer’s Society reach their goal and help more people, Ian’s JustGiving page is here and Tamzin’s is here. They are open until mid-October. Thank you so much!
The Marton Shops pick-up is withdrawn and changed to The Bus Stop outside the Premier Inn on Yarm Road, Stockton.
Also The Big Club pick-up will now be known as St Claire’s Church or Bewick Crescent Surgery
I had planned and mapped out 2 walks from Kepwick but in view of the narrowness of the roads in that area I have decided to omit them leaving 3 long walks from Osmotherley and 2 shorter walks from the A170.
This will hopefully help to avoid any unnecessary delays. So, other than the visit to Osmotherley, the coach will stick to A19 and A170.
