Experience the Moors ...  NYMA runs guided walks and visits to places of historical, cultural and environmental interest, led by people keen to share their favourite places.  

Most walks are 5-7 miles long. In 2018-19 many have been themed around the 'History Tree' book we published in 2018, visiting some of the fascinating places mentioned and learning about the varied - and sometimes eccentric! - personalities of the Moors.  
Sometimes we do a long-distance route in stages. For instance in 2016 we did several walks linking to the Cleveland Way, and in 2015 members completed 48 miles through the Tabular Hills (from Helmsley to Scarborough) in circular walks.  
Dogs are normally welcome, but 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 hope you'll join us! 
 

Walks 2019/2020 

There will be no NYMA walk in December, and in January there's a guided visit to Stokesley instead of a longer walk (see 'Events' listing).  
 
Saturday 22 February 2020: Danby/Little Fryup. Meet at 10am at Danby Village Hall for a 6.5 mile walk. We start with a steady climb into Danby Dale to North End Farm, followed by a steeper climb up to the Trig point. We then descend Crossleyside into Little Fryup Dale and pay a welcome visit to the the Yorkshire Cycle Hub for refreshment before returning to Danby via Forester’s Lodge, Danby Castle and Castle Houses. 
Walk leader: Jenny Shepherd (jennyshepherd85@hotmail.com). 
 
 
All walks are circular (unless otherwise stated). Please come dressed and equipped for the weather.
