North York Moors national park springs into action with latest activities

Staff at the North York Moors National Park say families, nature lovers and walkers are well catered for with their Easter and spring line up of activities.

The programme includes kayaking at East Barnby Outdoor Centre, the Compass Explorers’ Challenge and learning how to make fire on a bushcraft course.

For those more interested in nature, there's the opportunity to see the remarkable trees on the Duncombe Estate or a three-mile walk through a carpet of bluebells.

Active history lovers can sign up for a five-mile walk from Appleton- le-Moors through ancient tracks to explore some Roman-British sites, visit the hidden gem of Scotch Corner Chapel, near Oldstead or find out about the industrial heritage of the Esk Valley on a four-and-a-half mile walk from Grosmont.

For school holiday family fun, the park team has organised an Easter Trail. Visitors can call at the Moors National Park Centre at any time from 10am between 29 March and 1 April and use its map to locate the hidden eggs.

Staff say the programme is likely to be popular so advise early booking.
