Walking in the Hambleton Hills

Walking in the Hambleton Hills

 
The Hambleton Hills lie in the south-west corner of the North York Moors National Park. This is an area that is justifiably known for its varied landscape, a land of flat-topped hills interspersed with wooded and tranquil valleys. To the north, the hills are heather-clad moor inhabited by sheep and grouse, then as they gradually run south-wards, their nature changes to more gently rolling hills clad in woodland and fields of grain.
 
This is a fascinating area, one that has seen mankind take his early steps into agriculture, the introduction of Christianity to this land, and the successful and unsuccessful foreign invader. History has left a pattern on this landscape, one that can be traced as you walk. Join the author in a series of nine walks as he explores both the countryside and history of one of the countryís most popular national parks.
