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. Our walks and events will not run during the Coronavirus crisis - we will resume them as soon as possible.
IMPORTANT: in view of the coronavirus situation, we have decided to cancel (or postpone) all our guided walks and other events for the time being. We will review the situation as time goes on.
Most walks are 5-7 miles long. In 2018-19 many were 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.
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!
