The district of Ryedale includes the dales, which appear as green fingers stretching into the moors. Formed by melting Ice Age waters, these secluded dales include Bilsdale, Bransdale, Farndale, Rosedale and Newtondale.
Ancient crosses and waymarkers are a feature of the North York Moors, and have guided travellers across this sparse landscape for hundreds of years. The moorland villages are a delight, many with sheep grazing the common land in front of stone houses and cottages. Industry of an age gone by is also visible. In the second half of the 1800s, iron ore mining was at its peak, with a railway taking the iron north to the great blast furnaces in Middlesbrough. Today, the stone archways of the east kilns, high up on Rosedale Moor, are all that remain of a once thriving industry.
The National Park extends from Scarborough, Whitby, Staithes and Saltburn on the North Yorkshire Coast, to the charming towns of Pickering, Helmsley and Thirsk inland, via some stunning moorland and perfect walking country.
The mixed greens of fields and woodland in the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, add further variation. Historic market towns and traditional Yorkshire villages provide the visitor with high quality accommodation, places to eat, great shopping, and all with a great Yorkshire welcome.
In the south-east of Ryedale lie the Yorkshire Wolds, the most northerly chalk hills in Great Britain, deposited over a period of 30 million years, more than 65 million years ago, forming a crescent from the Humber Estuary to Flamborough Head. The Yorkshire Wolds are characterised by steep-sided dry valleys incised into a rolling plateau of highly permeable chalk, titled to the south-east to form escarpments above the Vales of York and Pickering.
York is a flourishing city and provides a great day out from Ryedale with car and rail journey times just under 30 minutes from Malton.
