‘National Trust – Caring for the North York Moors and Coast’
Presented by Kate Horne, Communications and Engagement Officer, South of Tyne property group
The National Trust cares for a number of sites across the North York Moors and Yorkshire Coast. These include well-known and popular places, such as the iconic Roseberry Topping and two coastal visitor centres, as well as lesser known ‘hidden gems’ such as Bransdale, a remote valley in the heart of the moors, and Hayburn Wyke north of Scarborough, where a woodland leads to a rocky bay and a double waterfall meets the sea. This talk will give a whistle-stop tour of a number of places, touching on their special features, history, landscape, habitats and wildlife. We’ll explore how the Trust works to protect them, now and for the future, touch on some current projects and look at ways the Trust is engaging people of all ages, growing a love of heritage, nature and the outdoors.
