North York Moors hailed as great walking venue
Bookmark and Share
The North York Moors is a great place to go walking, a volunteer whose work involves trying to increase the number of people from black and ethnic minority groups visiting the national park has said.

Sarah Liu, a community champion for the Mosaic project, said of the area: "The North York Moors is a brilliant place if you have never experienced it before."

Highlights include the "beautiful scenery" of Danby and the "brilliant" youth hostel at Whitby, she remarked at an event celebrating the work of the project.

Chair of the national park authority Narendra Bajaria commented that there has never been a better time to spread the message that such places are "accessible to all".

Designated as a national park in 1952, the North York Moors covers 1,434 sq km of land and lies close to urban areas such as Teesside and the former mining areas of Durham.

It is one of two national parks within the boundaries of the historic county of Yorkshire.
