Experience the Moors ...  Join NYMA's friendly, sociable 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 and include a picnic stop and plenty of opportunities to admire the view. 
Dogs are normally welcome, but please check with the walk leader. 
We're always keen to add more walks and events to our programme, so please get in touch if you have a special place you'd like to share! 
 

Walks 2021 

 
Fri 30 July - BECK HOLE IRONSTONE and GOATHLAND WHINSTONE 
Meet at the Pay & Display carpark in Goathland, YO22 5LX for 10am start. 
Jane Ellis will lead a 7-mile walk, starting down the old incline into the Murk Esk Valley to trace railways associated with Beck Hole’s ironstone industry, then up to Sil Howe whinstone quarries. We return via the whinstone mine entrance, finding evidence of wartime bomb damage, then along the mine tramway route by way of the reservoir which used to supply water for the turbine for the Goathland stone-crusher. 
There will be plenty of opportunity for tea and cake in Goathland after the walk! 
 
Sat 18 September – CAWTHORNE ROMAN CAMPS 
Meet at Cawthorne Camp carpark, 3.5 miles NW of Pickering (SE 782896, nearest postcode YO18 8QQ) for 10.30 start. After viewing this important Roman site (gentle 1-mile walk), we head off on a 5-mile walk through woods and farmland. Led by Janet Cochrane and Robin Chapman. Please contact secretary@nyma.org.uk / 07570 112010 with any questions. 
 
Please come dressed and equipped for the weather and observe Covid-19 guidance. It's worth wearing gaiters or at least tucking your trousers into your socks to deter ticks!
