Recognised as a unique and fragile environment, the central Moors were designated a National Park over fifty years ago which has helped to preserve the land from the throng of tourists and walkers who descend here every year.
It’s a land of gentle heather-clad hills, ancient woodland, lazy rivers and lush green valleys. It’s beautiful. Very very beautiful. So in this collection of Yorkshire images we’re paying tribute to that fact.
