Yorkshire Dales National Park

The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a special place: it has outstanding scenery, a range of wildlife habitats and a rich cultural heritage. It is a fantastic outdoor arena for recreation and peaceful relaxation and a haven for wildlife.

 The National Park was established in 1954, and covers an area of 1,762 square kilometres (680 square miles) in the north of England, straddling the central Pennines in the counties of North Yorkshire and Cumbria.
 
It is 50 miles (80.5 kilometres) north east of Manchester; Leeds and Bradford lie to the south, while Kendal is to the west and Darlington to the east.

Many people and organisations help to keep the National Park a special area and amongst them is the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority.
