Fylingdales Moor is part of the North York Moors covering a large area near the coast at Ravenscar. The scenery is delightful with the high heather covered moorland and views down the fertile valleys – it is a great place to go walking.
A fire which raged for 4 days back in 2003, “skinned” the precious moorland to its rocky bones and unexpectedly revealed some of the most important prehistoric archaelogy found in Britain.
We will drive out to the North York Moors and head out over Fylindales on a walk across the moors – looking out forexamples of this unique rock art. As well as exploring this significant prehistoric site we will bring to life how theses bronze age communities lived and interacted.
The North York Moors have a history all of their own, and we can enlighten you as to the geology, the geography, how the moors were formed, the significance of the stone crosses, the grouse shooting and sheep farming which is so important to modern day life on the Moors.
We can tie in the day with a trip to Ravenscar and the fantastic seaside town of Robin Hoods Bay with its narrow streets clinging to the cliffsides. There will be plenty of time to sample the local hosteleries or stop for fish and chips in Whitby!
This trip gives you he best of the North York Moors and Coast, whilst combining some wonderful 4000 year art.
