Yorkshire Dales National Park

​The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a haven for wildlife with outstanding scenery and a rich cultural heritage.

The National Park was established in 1954, and covers an area of 841 square miles in the north of England, 50 miles north east of Manchester. The area boasts wildflower meadows and pastures, heather moorland, and unique limestone crags and pavements, some of the finest in England. Each valley has its own character, and spectacular waterfalls and ancient woodland reveal evidence of centuries of rural industry.
