Fracking banned in the UK!!!

This is welcome news, having campaigned hard against the KM8 well in Kirkby Misterton, North Yorkshire and taken an active role in the County Councils Joint Minerals and Waste Plan Examination and with colleagues across the country fighting this industry, we welcome and support the view taken by Government that fracking is not a suitable method for extracting natural gas in the UK.

This is a huge victiry for the countryside, climate and the communities.

North Yorkshire Coast

In North Yorkshire the coast's are popular in the summer, but in Winter dogs love the sand ans the sea.  In the summer there are lots of people swimming, shouting, bathing and partying at the coast.  People also open shops at that time because the more goodies, the better time.   They also open restaurants because the beach is a fun place for friends to go.  They even open to die for fish an chips that fill your mouth with happiness and joy even on a rainy day.  In Winter dogs and there owners explore the sea. If you like peaceful places you should like the beach in winter.  But if you like lots of company you can go in Summer where it will be crazy. 

North Yorkshire Countryside

Welcome to our countryside. Here we have lots of views and animals here.  There are a few things to do and see in the countryside. You can look at the ancient ruins of chimneys and the Roman Roads.  You can even smell the sweet grass and you can hear the sheep in the distance.  There are many trails for people to walk, bike and scooter.  If you like quads and motorbikes, you can bring it there and let the wind take you away. 

We hope you come and we will see you soon.  These places are only a few I like about the great North Yorkshire, but don't forget to drink Yorkshire TEA!!  Made by us.

Blakey Ridge is a good pub to eat at, after a day in the countryside, you could Pre book a meal or come in without a booking, whatever the weather come in and have some food.

The seaside is a nice place to go in the summer, with great beaches and seas. It is ideal for surfing, fish and chips. The bright, beautiful shells with angry, furious crabs inside. Go and enjoy a trip to the oldest lifeboat in the world at Redcar or go to Gabrielle’s also in Redcar.

Why I love north yorkshire

Watch the delightful, dancing, dazzling daffodils blowing and flowing across the stream. Enjoy staring at the blue, wonderful steam. In spring you might see a fluffy and happy lamb playing in the long, green grass. Helmsley is a wonderful place for adventure: You can explore the market and visit the crumbled, brilliant castle. Helmsley has great shops furthermore you can treat yourself with coffee and hot chocolate at the cafe.

If you like walking, if you like ice cream, if you like trains, then visit North Yorkshire. Autumn, a beautiful time of year when the leaves change colour, is the best time to take a trip on the steam train. It will take you on a delightful, enjoyable journey to Whitby.it will make your face light up.

"My favourite season in North Yorkshire is spring because of the beautiful bluebells, the dancing daffodils and creamy ice creams"

 

North Yorkshire Moors

Views and Walks

The well-viewed North Yorkshire Moors is well known for its views and walks. Near where I live is Duncombe Park which is a massive hill followed by streams and nature. Also the Duncombe house which is a colossal house made of the finest bricks, you’ll have to be the richest of the richest to own this house. It is a grand, luxurious house and is known by many people. The rest of Duncombe Park is full of amazing views/sights. Do you like walking? If so there is many other walks but I can’t name them all. There is the white horse walk, the horse is made of white rocks on a steep hill. There is many other walks that you should check out.

Animals

There are many animals in North Yorkshire such as horses, chickens, cows, and sheep (etc.) they normally belonged to farmers and probably found on fields if not then on acres of land which are kept private. Many horses come past my house, it’s like a routine and is normally early in the morning. I absolutely love to watch them trot outside my bedroom window, they are amazing, magnificent animals and I will always treat them with care. If you go in to the fabulous forests of North Yorkshire you might be able to see a deer, fox, pheasant and more, remember to not feed any of them or they might start to come for you!!!


Seasons

My favourite season in North Yorkshire is spring because of the beautiful bluebells, the dancing daffodils and creamy ice creams. Autumn is also a great season for its stunning leaves and when they gracefully fall. Winter is the most fun but most freezing season. Do you like sledging on cold, crumbly, chalky snow which is as smooth as satin? Well if so come to North Yorkshire and sledge on bags of hay. Hold tight! Summer is by far the hottest season were you can go to the Helmsley outdoor pool and enjoy nice cold, icy water.

Landmarks

The most popular landmark near Helmsley is probably Rievaulx Abby, which is an old building. It used to be for monks and were they lived. Reivaulx Abby is a trivial but popular landmark: it is very old but really fascinating. I have been on a school trip and it is the best thing I have ever seen. It fits in of where it is and bring life to the stunning scenery. The most popular landmark in Helmsley is Helmsley Castle which is also a building that’s been there for decades and decades it does the same as Rievaulx Abby brings life to Helmsley and brings us all joy!

I Hope you check these things I’ve told you about. Come to North Yorkshire and you’ll have LOADS of fun!!!

 

 

  • KAYLEY

"...Imagine a place where the lakes filled with jumping Olympic frogs, where you can canoe until your hearts are content, think of a place where there is endless activities to do. North Yorkshire is that place."

 

Why I love North Yorkshire

I love North Yorkshire because it is a world of wonder and you never know what beautiful landscape you are going to find.

I love going to Danby to walk around and go to the playground. A couple of weeks ago I went there to see some owls, giant African snails, tarantulas, cockroaches and finally some mice. There was some crafts and activities to do there. I dissected some owl pellets and found a full vole skull; it even had its jaw intact! If you love picnics, if you love animals, if you love nature walks, then come to Danby National Park Moors Centre.

On a night when I go to sleep, I can hear the owls in my backyard because behind my fence there is a row of thick trees and a farm behind it .There is rarely any barn owls but there is always tawny owls. Once I heard an owl in my backyard, I looked out the window and it was sitting on my fence! I got a torch and went outside I was careful to not frighten it or startle it. I went up to it and it was a Tawny owl. Owls, which hunt mice, have very good eyesight. They are one of my favourite animals.

The rocky, rugged, colossal hilltops are a magnificent type of landscape. The delightful dancing daffodils surround them whilst being embedded within the tall pine forest. The warming cosy satsuma-coloured fin leaves, cover the gorges squelchy moors giving it a pop of colour. You should collect some and make some beautiful autumn artwork.

Scarborough is a great place to see the majestic coastline: and watch the sunset cover the night sky. You can find lots of shells and all kinds of rocks in the golden – creamy coloured sand alone the rock face. And if you’re lucky you might even find a fossil.

The viviparous lizard is a tiny dinosaur like reptile. They are found in dry and warm corners, often on warm tree trunks or logs, in the late spring through to autumn. The give birth to live young unlike many other lizards which lay eggs. The Grey Seal is a coastal animal; the Latin name for these creatures is the “hooked-nosed sea pig”. Look out for them in a bay or on the coast tending to their young.

Imagine a place where the lakes filled with jumping Olympic frogs, where you can canoe until your hearts are content, think of a place where there is endless activities to do. North Yorkshire is that place.

 

  •  ESME

"...Imagine a place where the sand tickles your toes, where the sea never ends, well come to North Yorkshire."

 

I LOVE North Yorkshire because there are so many kind and happy people in North Yorkshire! In spring the flowers are bright, pretty and smell nice too. Delicate, dainty, dancing daffodils beside the rippling stream in Helmsley. The magical castle is a wonderful place to visit.

In summer at Scarborough on the beach the golden sand tickles and the light blue sea is perfect for body boarding and surfing with really good waves that. Pools ear fun with lots of happy people. There’s lots of swimming pools in North Yorkshire theres Thirsk, Ampleforth , Helmsley and lots more swimming pools.

In winter its very cold and everyone is wearing there wule hats scarf and gloves. When the snow cuvers the ground like a white blanket and we all make rile big snow bols.

When it is autumn the colourful leaves foall of the trees hedgehogs foxes and mor haybnat to.

If you like fish and chips, if you enjoy visiting posh hotels, then Scarborough is the place for you.

Imagine a place where the sand tickles your toes, where the sea never ends, well come to North Yorkshire.

"...You must pick ripe red strawberries and eat them with ice cream made in North Yorkshire..."

 

Why I love the North Yorkshire Countryside

I love that when you go outside you can walk anywhere because we live in the North Yorkshire countryside. It is an amazing place to explore with or without a dog. I live on the edge of the North York Moors so I can find great walks near my house and if you drive in a car there’s even more to discover.

I love the way every season changes the North Yorkshire countryside. In autumn I love the woods with the golden-brown leaves scattered across the ground and hedgehogs rustling beneath them. It is a great place to hunt for shiny-brown conkers and their spiked conker shells with silk inside.

In winter, you must go sledging down a thick snowy hill. Sometimes it is so cold that the puddles freeze, and you can jump on them and shatter the ice with a loud smash. You could go up Duncombe Park and choose a Christmas tree that has been grown in the North Yorkshire countryside instead of a fake one. You must go have fish and chips by the sea on a cold and wet day.

In the spring you could see bluebells in forests and daffodils sprouting and other flowers. You can go and see baby lambs in fields all around the countryside. The weather gets warmer and the days start to get longer. Bumblebees wake up and birds sing a morning song.in the spring there are beautiful buzzing busy bees pollinating flowers. Adders, which are small, are the only poisonous snake in North Yorkshire.  

Beaches are beautiful when the sun is out in summer, and kids are playing in the sea. I love having picnics on a warm sunny day. You must pick ripe red strawberries and eat them with ice cream made in North Yorkshire. I like going on bike rides in the warm weather and paddling in the streams. You can catch a fish in the warm sea or have a swim. The coastline of North Yorkshire is a beautiful place: it has amazing beaches filled with fossils to find in cliffs.

You can take your dog on walks and find old, ancient rivers in vast open forests. The nature in the moors is great furthermore, you could find fossils. In Dalby forest, there are walks that are long but very enjoyable. You can climb many trees. And after a long day you could go have an ice cream I recommend vanilla with a flake!

Imagine a place with lovely scenery, where the grass is green, where the animals roam free: in North Yorkshire, there is such a place. I love the North Yorkshire countryside and everything about it. I think we are very lucky to live here!

"..Over the moors is historic Helmsley and its magnificent castle that was built in 1186, but destroyed in the gruesome English Civil War..."

 

Cattel train station is a sleepy train station with lots of beautiful countryside surrounding it .The passengers get excited when they hear the rumbling and whistling of the train. They enjoy the smell of the luscious Yorkshire roses as they wait for their train .the manual level crossing few of its kind {did you know there’s only 5 left in the UK}

An hour away is the magnificent moors, personally I think Blakey ridge is best place on the moors. Blakey ridge is 90% heather and I love the rich purple heather when you lie in it .arthter dozing in the heather you may enjoy a lovely hearty meal at the pub

Over the moors is historic Helmsley and its magnificent castle that was built in 1186, but destroyed in the gruesome English Civil War. The castle stands crumbling and in a derelict state. In spring, you can smell the lovely daffodils that surround the castle. after gazing at the magnificent castle you must have a lovely milkshake at the castlegate tearoom .if you come in summer you can paddle in brobeck just across from castle gate tearoom. If you want to swim in Helmsley, you can go to our open-air pool {only available in summer}

An hour twenty minutes away in robin hoods bay with its narrow streets and a little beach. On the little beach is a mysterious causeway that leads out to sea. In addition, you can walk to Ravenscar that is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes away. If you come to Robin Hoods Bay in the winter, you can look up to the amazing snowy Ravenscar.

A bay away is Whitby where you should go a boat trip to see the sea sournding Whitby and river esk when you come back to dry land you can enjoy a meal of fish and chips at the magpie and a chocolate brownie sundae. You may also go to the beach, Dracula experience, and Whitby abbey.

20 minutes away is Dalby forest aka the great Yorkshire forest.it is great for children because it has a great adventure playground it is also great for walkers you will be amazed with massive variety of bridle ways and footpaths

50 miles away is hare wood house with its wonderful gardens.

This is my journey through Harwood house first I would have a play on the adventure playground then I would go to the chinse garden afterwards I would go to the summer garden with its fruits and vegetables

If you like ice cream if you like beautiful landscape if you love outstanding coastline come to north Yorkshire!

"...I love the coastlines and finding old naturally shaped fossils. Also the sound of the crashing waves hitting against the sea wall. .."

 

I love north Yorkshire because I was born here and I have lived here all my life. I live on a farm in the Yorkshire moors, which is fantastic because see and experience lots, of natural wonders.

On our farm we have buzzards, herons, barn owls, bats, game birds and hedge hogs. I am lucky enough to rear my own sheep, my favourites are Daffy and Rosie which I have shown at the Ryedale show. On the farm I travel on quad bikes and tractors sometimes with my dad sometimes without. In the Spring we get to see beautifully coloured bluebells and they smell terrific.

I also like travelling with my dad on trains and we have hundreds of miles of track to explore in north Yorkshire. I love the coastlines and finding old naturally shaped fossils. Also the sound of the crashing waves hitting against the sea wall. The sun set at dusk is beautifully coloured skies with a rose tint. In North Yorkshire there is a wide variety of places to visit including a place called Leeming Bar is an amazing place if you love walks, if you love trains, if you love scenery then come to Leeming Bar.

There are many walks to do in North Yorkshire including roseberry topping which myself my dad and my brother have all reach the very top of.

Why I love North Yorkshire

I love the North Yorkshire countryside because in summer all the moors are purple.

"...The daffodils in Farndale are one of my second favourite sights. It is a sea of custard spreading over vast green hills there were loads of wild flowers and ancient trees..."

Why I love North Yorkshire

I have been to lots of places in England and I think North York is by far the best. There are lots of beautiful places and some of my favourites include the daffodils in Farndale and the waterfalls in Helmsley. Even though they are man-made they are absolutely beautiful the crystal clear water rushes down the rocks and looks astonishing. The daffodils in Farndale are one of my second favourite sights. It is a sea of custard spreading over vast green hills there were loads of wild flowers and ancient trees. Plus there was a tree that you could climb into. It had a small birds nest with little hatched sky blue eggs. It felt very enchanted and magical. It was as if you were in a cave with a mysterious voice echoing you. There were lots of wild flowers and garlic everywhere and most of the flowers were cornflowers.

The animals that live around here amazing. There are grouses rabbits pheasants cow’s horses and more I also love that can just roam around see: cows mooing; sheep barring; horses neighing; turkeys cock-a-doodle-doing; pigs snorting.

In north York I love the moors the moors have most of the animals furthermore it has bugs and flowers to. I think there is about 200,000 acres of land (maybe even more) filled with beautiful heather .heather is one of my favourite flowers around here. It is a purple Flower and this flower can make the whole moors purple. Year 3/4 Helmsley went on a school trip and I thought it was amazing. We learnt all about the moors and everything that happens there.

I really like the views in North Yorkshire because there everywhere. The outstanding things are all over everything and something is always happening there. It is the glory of the world yet the peace as well. It is a place for animals to roam around free

If you love going outside,

If you’re inspired by David Attenborough,

If you love picturesque views,

Then North Yorkshire is the place for you?

"...Northerners are noted for being more friendly and open that their southern counterparts. I think there is some truth in this..."

 

Why I love North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire is the place where I was born. This is one of the most beautiful places in the UK. It is the biggest county in the UK by a long way.

I love North Yorkshire because, the people are nice kind and reliable . Everybody helps and supports each other. Northerners are noted for being more friendly and open that their southern counterparts. I think there is some truth in this. People are inclined to chat more and there is a slower pace of life here.

North Yorkshire has lots of wonderful landscapes to see. It has woods, beaches , sea, hills and lots more breathtaking places to see. There are also plenty of things to do and see and do for children. Personally I recommend Flamingo Land and any kind of animal farms which give you good experience. Most of everywhere there is a lot of animals and plants to see . You can also go birdwatching in Duncombe Park .North Yorkshire has many walking paths, people are coming from different places to explore the moors. We have vast expanses of landscape for walking , cycling or just enjoying the outdoors. The Yorkshire Moors and dales are amazing places to explore and when the tour de France came here in 2014 even the cyclists were surprised at how fabulous it was!

There is plenty of countryside pubs. The food is delicious and the drinks are refreshing. You can also enjoy your food whilst your eating your food to.

"The fabulous thing about the North Yorkshire countryside is that there’s lots of different types of views like moorland, coastal, forestry, streams and rolling hills."

 

Why I love North Yorkshire

Imagine a place where you can walk forever where the river flows where you can see all the beauty of England in one place there is such a county North Yorkshire.

Helmsley

If you go to Helmsley for your holidays you could visit the National centre for birds of prey. It is the winner of the best attraction in Yorkshire and the attraction near York. Helmsley castle, the castle was only 1.9 miles (3 km) from Rievaulx Abbey when first built.

Views

There are some fantastic sights to see in North Yorkshire. The fabulous thing about the North Yorkshire countryside is that there’s lots of different types of views like moorland, coastal, forestry, streams and rolling hills. A great example of that is the view from the top of Sutton Bank which some people have said has greatest views in the country. At night in the North York Moors it’s really dark so you can see the beautiful stars very well and there is loads of them if you’re really lucky you may be able to see the Northern lights!

Seasons

In Autumn, you can trek through the amazing forestry when all the leaves are vibrant and colourful ready to fall off. In Summer you can go fossil hunting. A really good place for fossil hunting is Robin Hoods Bay. In Winter, when it’s a freezing, snowy and frosty day, you could go sledging down a hill. In Spring you can go to the moors and bird watching.

Wildlife

Fantastic diverse wildlife including deer, grouse, pheasants, ferrets, minx, rabbit, stokes and a massive variety of birds. All the scenery and landscapes provide great habitats for the animals.

North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire is the biggest county in England. Whitby is famous for its Goth festival, fish and chips, Whitby jet and views. The coastline look beautiful on a night because of its golden sunset in the horizon. We are so lucky to have lovely restaurants right on our doorstep for example, the Star, my favourite bar in the world, you must go there. Brilliant parks nearby like Castle Howard, Duncombe Park and Peasholm park and loads more. If you love stunning views, if you love scenery, if you love wildlife then North Yorkshire is the place for you.

What I love about North Yorkshire

Just imagine a really sunny place with the best beaches and nice ice creams and fun for days.

If you like enjoy playing in the water,

If you like building sandcastles,

Then North Yorkshire is the place                                                                                          

You should go to Dalby Forest, because you will love the bike rides lots of twist and turns and bumps sometimes if you’re an adult you like doing the black root but you will have to train a lot. The play bit is ok but only if you bring a football and because there is already a football goal there at the moment only if it’s not raining and there is a rope what you can swing on it is fun but a bit sketchy because it’s got shallow water but I think you still might like it because it’s really fun and you can go on the over side but you will find it hard to get back. Sutton Bank has an outstanding view and the walk is really big. But snakes which are dangerous, even though there hard to find and there is loads of snake holes but don’t worry they only come out at night. And there is so much gliders and you can see Roseberry topping from there it is really nice view and there is really good dog walks your dog would be hoofing and puffing when you get back. It goas on FOR MILES. The beach is an amazing place were its always sunny when it decides to and there is a really big walk right across the beach there is so much fun to have and you will like this really nice place where you can have fish and chips and if your lucky you might get really nice pudding.

"The thing I love about the most about North Yorkshire is the Towns and Villages because there are open spaces where you can play with your friends and go to the local park together."

 

What I love about North Yorkshire

Imagine a place where the sea is always flowing, where battles never happen, where the moors are calm: the North Yorkshire countryside has everything. I love North Yorkshire because I have lived here for most of my life and my family live here as well after moving from Liverpool.

The thing I love about the most about North Yorkshire is the Towns and Villages because there are open spaces where you can play with your friends and go to the local park together. I live right outside the North York Moors National Park in a town called Helmsley. Here we have moorland, heather and open spaces. The towns and villages are very nice: they have fabulous shops and museums which tell the history of the place.

In Whitby there is an historical Abbey to visit which is very near to the sea. The seaside is very nice because in Scarborough you must get waffles on the beach and eat them but you have to be careful because the seagulls might get them. At the seaside there is yummy fishcake especially at Whitby and you should catch crabs in the river and lots of other stuff. You can find old, ancient castles in a vast, open space.

There is the greatest view in England at Sutton Bank where you can see a lot of land and structures that’s why it is the greatest view in England. At Sutton Bank you can go on lots of different bike rides going to different places. You can see a pond and some wildlife like butterflies at the end of one of the walks. The beautiful brand-new busy River Rye at Helmsley is a brilliant river for walking in because it is not very deep. All the footpaths are the best for a morning walk, furthermore there is lots of wildlife. Flowers, which are a very common plant, are found in the beautiful North Yorkshire Countryside.

The pubs in North Yorkshire have very nice food like the one at Blakey Ridge the food is Baked Beans, Sausages and Mash. I also like the food from Yorkshire like Yorkshire Puddings. There is lots of farms in North Yorkshire which keep Sheep and Cows and lots of open fields.

In the Winter[ when it is snowing] the North Yorkshire countryside is pretty much full of snow and also there is lots of mountains in the area which are great for sledging! In Spring the countryside is at its finest because you get to see all the flowers shooting up and the sun. In Autumn you can see all the leaves falling off the trees getting ready for the winter. And in Summer it is not dark until like 10:00 at night which is really good because you get to play longer. Imagine a place where the sea is always flowing, where battles never happen, where the moors are calm: in the North York Moors Countryside there is everything.

"Imagine a place where there is an endless variety of wildlife, where you can do loads of activities..."

 

What I love about North Yorkshire

Imagine a place where there is an endless variety of wildlife, where you can do loads of activities such as biking, or explore the sunniest beaches dotted around the North Yorkshire countryside. do you like adders, do you like an endless variety of wildlife, if you do this is the place for you!

In the spring, the fern comes out and at the top of the plant it curls up and it is quite a sight. Because of the lovely countryside, there is a lot of peaceful walks you can do, with perfect spots to have a well-deserved picnic, and watch your children enjoy paddling in a stream nearby.

In the summer, the lovely purple heather comes out and the moors is coated with amethyst sea. Hutton-Le-Hole, has an excellent view of rolling hills and the dense woodland, home to animals such as: deer, badgers and woodpeckers. In the summer is the best time to go to the beach as it is quite sunny and warm; Scarborough is the best place to go because the sand is like a silky yellow carpet, the waves break into a lovely.

In Autumn, you can watch the crisp leaves turning from olive to amber. At night minute bats fly about, catching flies, making lovely squeaky noises. Because the leaves change colour, and the leaves fall gracefully off the trees, our back garden is an autumn sensation. Most of the time in autumn it is great to have an apple crumble and a cup of cocoa, what a treat!

In Winter, we like to relax and watch the snow fall down the window. Normally we go outside; out on a nice peaceful walk, out in a forest. The cliffs are covered with a chalky sea it is really beautiful. Because there are a lot of fords so if you enjoy driving through water then you should drive up today!                              

As well there is a pile of places to visit including: Thirsk (the home of James Herriot), Ampleforth a lovely village, Kirkbymoorside a beautiful place, Helmsley a place that has lovely daffodils and Farndale extremely famous for its daffodils.

So, are you going to drive down this week?

"Helmsley is a good place to live because there is a lot of good parks"

Why I like North Yorkshire

Yorkshire is a good place because there is a beach at Whitby and Scarborough. Sandy and rocky, the waves crash on the shore leaving sea foam and shells behind.

Primroses valley is a holiday place (Havens). It’s a nice place to get away from computer games and Nintendo switch. Outside I played wack a day and it was a wacky day!

In Helmsley there is a nice ice cream shop. Mint choc chip is my favourite ice cream. Helmsley is a good place to live because there is a lot of good parks!

In North Yorkshire there is a place called Dalby forest there are a lot of trees you can climb. In autumn the river is cold: I made a really cool bridge with stones and logs. When the river is shallow you can swing on a rope and jump in.

Slithering, sliding, slurping adders come out of Adder Rock at the Bride stones. The Bride stones are sandstone rocks that are mouldy and grey: snakes live in them. Trains are cool when whiles goes choo choo. They go fast because there have coal.

To run them and get all the passengers to their desternaison at York train stain

Fossils are cool and all. in Yorkshire is a good plays to get fossils in Whitby, scarbrore that’s it for the beaches.

In the winter you can go to Sheffield arena to and sing for the school you are in.  

Yorkshire is a good plays to go swimming because there is a lot of swimming pool like Helmsley,Pickerring and Thirsk.

In Yorkshire there is lots of parks in Helmsley and a lot of other place.

There are sum fish and chip shops in North Yorkshire, Kirby, Helmsley, scarbroue, York to.

Fish and chips are nice with salt and vinegar.

 

 

  • SUMMER

"If you enjoy going on long, scenic walks, if you love the woodland full of it’s outstanding colour, if you enjoy nature at it’s finest, then North Yorkshire is the place for you."

 

Why I Love North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire is the largest county in England, ranging from bleak, rugged, windswept landscape. From the Yorkshire Moors to picturesque hills, valleys and rivers of North Yorkshire. Imagine a place where wildlife thrives roaming across the seductive wilderness, where towering trees climb higher and higher, where hills roll of the all inspiring North Yorkshire.

Spring

March heralds the start of Spring, warming temperature and lengthening days; more daylight hours for getting out in the North Yorkshire Moors. With Winter behind us, lift your spirits in the stunning countryside. Nature bursts into life shaking off it’s Winter coat bringing wild daffodils, bluebells, birds and bees. Ribberting frogs, croaking toads and elusive adders all start to emerge from their winter hibernating destinations. Mad March hares are very energetic at this time of year when the bucks and does start sparring ( sparring is a courtship behaviour ). In my opinion there’s nothing better than seeing the first lambs galloping in the olive-green fields.

Summer

Summer really kicks off in June and soon is in full swing. In early Summer you tend to see late breeders such as deer. Elderly oak, irresistible ash and unbelievable beech trees are all at the point when they’re full of luscious leaves. Whales and porpoises are a very common sites at this time of year around our varied coastline. The rainbow spectrum of colours of the beautiful wildflowers fill our majestic meadows with life. The attractive, spikey bell heather spreads across the breath-taking, unmissable moors.

Autumn

Seasons are changing furthermore autumn is rolling in. Chestnut-brown, moss-green leaves all scrunch as their stepped on by stomping welly boots. The crisp crunch of Autumn leaves is one of my favourite sounds of nature. The woodland is a place of natural beauty: it’s home to wild garlic; flowers; fern plants; trees; great spotted woodpeckers; red squirrels; hedgehogs; badgers; foxes; owls and insects. Sadly swallows and swifts all start to migrate back to Africa. Hedgehogs will start going into a deep sleep called hibernation which means they sleep all Winter. Autumn is a crucial time as deer go into rut ( Rut is a certain behaviour when the stags fight over females).

Winter

Darkening evenings become a playground for nocturnal animals such as: parliaments of owls and boisterous badgers. Bare trees make our country feel magical as we are carpeted with white, twinkling snow. Bullfinches have flaming red or orange breasts at this time of year, trust me it’s stunning site. Winter maybe still be holding it’s grip but Spring is around the corner.

If you enjoy going on long, scenic walks, if you love the woodland full of it’s outstanding colour, if you enjoy nature at it’s finest, then North Yorkshire is the place for you. Well that’s what’s special to me about North Yorkshire and I hope we appreciate our seasons more. It’s not exactly a secret, but it is a surprise to some – North Yorkshire is a spectacular place!

"If you love long relaxing walks. If you love little lambs, if you love scenic views from the top of rolling hills then take a step into North Yorkshire."

Why I love North Yorkshire

Yorkshire is the biggest county in England. It is truly magnificent.

In its Country side there are dozens of exciting walks or tracks for cyclists including a shorter walk to what some people have called the best view in Britain. I can’t start to describe how breath-taking the picturesque valley views are.

With these amazing views brings endless wildlife, which I love watching on mornings, scattered around you’ll see them every where you go. In summer you’re bound to find butterflies gliding through the air like ballet dancers and in spring it’s bird galore.

North Yorkshire is home to many of the 165+ species of birds of prey, and has displays dotted around on the map (I personally like the Duncombe Park one as the café is excellent.) These demonstrations are only few of the many shown around North Yorkshire that help children and adults interact with wildlife.

Other than birds of prey, there are a lot of other fun things to do ranging from agricultural shows to markets to beaches for all the family. After all this excitement you’ll be extremely hungry and there’s no better place to go then Millers fish and chip shop Haxby (voted best chip shop via internet.) Trust me they are lovely!

A little further away is another place I love to go: the seaside. The coastline is vast and wonderful: it has rugged cliffs; supreme sandy beaches; rippling waters; and beautiful birds. Every time I think of the beach I think of ice-cream and sand filling my toes but the natural beauties are what makes most amazing. You must visit the sea; the waves are like galloping horses; the air is fresh and salty; the vibe is bright and happy.

The towns are excellent, furthermore they have markets weekly with the finest delicacies and clothes. The small shops, which line the streets, are packed with souvenirs that can only be found in North Yorkshire. The grass in these towns is covered in has mass upon mass of flowers which really brighten the place up.

If you love long relaxing walks. If you love little lambs, if you love scenic views from the top of rolling hills then take a step into North Yorkshire.

Imagine a place where wildlife thrives, where flowers grow and rivers wind:

This place you think of is North Yorkshire. Come visit us if you want to.

I love North Yorkshire and you will to!

If you don’t come you’re missing out immensely. (So you ought to come)

"The wildness and the fun: this is why I love the North Yorkshire countryside."

 

When all the boxes were packed, when all the lights were off, when the lorry was fully loaded, we set off. On the roads, past the tower blocks, down the high street and away from the city. 4 hours motorway, streets and A-roads, then… A whole new world!

The rugged, wild and windy moors glow a bright, tantalising purple as the heather elegantly dances in the beautiful breeze and the sheep run happy and free. The long, emerald green grass whistles a pretty tune while, to your surprise, you are swept off your feet by the strong, powerful and almighty wind. A smile plastered on your face; North Yorkshire’s moors are truly stunning, furthermore they are classed as an area of outstanding natural beauty! Meanwhile, by the coast a wave crashes up against the hard stone walls as people lick their lovely lollipops and others tear off pieces of pale pink and pretty candyfloss, they squeal in utter delight as it melts in their mouth; but, what was that? ‘Crunch, crunch, crunch!’ Of course it is the sound of hard, tasty rock being enjoyed! Cute pooches patrol the rocky, untamed coastline with the noisy, thieving seagulls loudly shrieking.

The wildness and the fun: this is why I love the North Yorkshire countryside.

Peaceful, tranquil villages nestled amongst the great, green rolling hills; their small communities as cheerful as can be. Old cottages, which always have a story to tell, line the cobbled streets, history oozing from their walls. Suddenly, from behind the trees appears the pulchritudinous Rievaulx Abbey! Rievaulx is a dazzling, derelict old abbey: the setting sun illuminates this divine place as the grass is lovingly nibbled at by the sheep admiring the ancient, weathered stone walls. This charming, calm and centuries old building delights many onlookers, who are enthralled by the view.

The peacefulness, the history and the beauty: this is why I love the North Yorkshire countryside.

The picturesque dales, the chugging steam train making its way slowly down the steel tracks and the magnificent stately homes; the beautiful scenes make and artist’s canvas come to life. The sheer beauty: this is why I love the North Yorkshire Countryside. The North Yorkshire countryside mesmerises and captures the hearts of thousands of people; my heart has been caught by this utterly breath taking place. If I had not seen the moors and the coast, if I had not visited the harmonious villages, if I hadn’t moved to this splendid county, then I would never have been able to define wildness, fun, peacefulness, history or beauty. Imagine a place where everyone is friendly, where there is a wildlife paradise outside your front door, where you can witness Britain at its beautiful best – this place is North Yorkshire, the place I love. My heart will forever live in North Yorkshire. They say home is where the heart is and that is certainly true.

This is why I love the North Yorkshire Countryside.

Why I Love North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire, an area of outstanding natural beauty, home to a wide range of habitats to fit the large variety of animals that live there.

Heather dominates The North York Moors National Park, a picturesque, area of moorland covering North Yorkshire, giving a vast, natural environment for both winged and land animals. Our only venomous snake in the United Kingdom, the shy adder can be spotted basking in the sun in woodlands and heathlands (moorland,) lying on smooth rocks or on the edge of pathways on walks. Talking of walks, my personal preference when out in the moors is watching birds of prey. Some birds you will see on your moorland encounter are: The Merlin, this small fast flying birds is a type of Falcon, the UK’s smallest Raptor, males have a blueish grey back and tail, and a cream chest. Females have a brown back with stripes across the tail; Lapwings are easy to spot, with shiny green feathers on top, large black and white wings and a wispy green crest on top of the head. When a male is attracting a female, he does a superb display of diving, twisting and turning in the air.

Explore coastline and rocky, craggy cliffs as you enter the pristine beaches of North Yorkshire! Some beaches I personally love) are: Scarborough, is one of the UK's top seaside resorts and it's easy to see why. Whatever your idea of a good day out at the seaside is, you're going to find what you're looking for in this vibrant Yorkshire town; Whitby Beach offers something for everyone. Topaz, rippling, hypnotic waters for those who like a paddle. Fascinating rock pools for those interested in the local marine life. Spectacular cliffs steeped in geological history for the visiting explorers and clean sandy beaches for those who just like to relax on rustic, copper, bronze sands.

But the climate is changing, whether you like it or not and even though you might not know it, our careless ways and our thoughtless actions are leading to current and predicted trouble for wildlife, animals and the world itself. If you don’t want are world to go to waste for us and future generations, then join CPRE in Campaigning to Protect Rural England and help do all you can to preserve nature. It doesn’t have to be something massive and amazing, just the smallest things like: leaving some wildflowers left in your garden for Bees; Getting some bird boxes or feeders; Making a small shelter in a corner of your garden, that could save a hedgehogs life, all these thing that could disappear and go extinct if we keep going in the same direction we’re going, could be saved by the smallest choices you can make, that will have the biggest impact on saving wildlife, for North Yorkshire and the world.

North Yorkshire, an area of outstanding natural beauty, I do hope it’s still there for generations to come.

"Imagine a place where there are beautiful landscapes, where there are no wars, where there are rare plants. Well you don’t have to, just come to North Yorkshire"

 

Why I Love North Yorkshire

The thing I love about North Yorkshire is agriculture because I love being with animals and I like seeing the fields full of crops. Also since I live on a farm I get to do stuff other kids can’t do like: quad biking; and learning how to lamb a sheep. My family and I are always very busy because of the different things on the farming calendar like:

In Springtime

  • Lambing: first we gather the ewes up and put them either in a shed or move them to a different field away from the tups also we feed them what they need to have a good healthy lamb then they start lambing so we have to watch them or intervene then we turn them out into the field then tail so they don’t have long tails also we tag them and scan them so we know their birth details
  • Calving: is basically lambing but with cows or bulls

Summer

  • Shearing: taking the wool off so that they don’t overheat, to sell and to stop them getting maggots
  • Harvesting: picking up crops using a combine or a harvester
  • Silaging: is where you cut the grass then tedder it so that it is dry then you rake it into columns then the baler bales it up into bales
  • Sheep showering / dipping: sheep showering is where you put sheep in a special trailer and then turn a jet on which sprays them with chemical to stop them getting scab and fly strike. Dipping is where you push the sheep into a long, thin tank (bath) full of chemical like the sheep shower but you have to push their heads in with something like a crook and with that item you can also pull the sheep back
  • Weaning lambs: weaning lambs is where you take the lambs away from their mothers and they can both be quite loud

Autumn

  • Tupping: tupping is where you put the tups in with the ewes and then changing their raddles, which mark the ewes bums so we know who’s going to lamb and when
  • Weaning calves: weaning calves is where you take away the calves from their mothers and both of them are quite loud
  • Selling: selling is where you sell the sheep which you don’t need but you sell them in Guineas which are one pound and five pence
  • Drilling: drilling is where you put seeds into a big tank and then the seeds go through pipes into the ground

Winter

  • Feeding: giving ewes enough energy so they can lamb easily and they can be fed by a bag, snacker which goes on the back of a quadbike and drops groups of nuts, the last one is feeding them fodder beet, so we plant fodder beet then we move an electric fence on every day
  • Bedding up: putting another layer of straw on

Imagine a place where there are beautiful landscapes, where there are no wars, where there are rare plants. Well you don’t have to, just come to North Yorkshire. Here are some places I like about North Yorkshire: big, busy, bustling shows like Ryedale show and the great Yorkshire show; the green, flowery meadows with lambs skipping in them; the lovely moors, which have the biggest variety of nature, which are controlled by gamekeepers and farmers; Whitby is a great beach furthermore it has the best fossils. If you like walks by rivers, if you like the coast, if you like seeing wildlife at Its finest then come to North Yorkshire.

Why I love North Yorkshire

I love North Yorkshire because there are so many wonderful places and amazing things to see, such as Dalby Forest, Rievaulx Abbey or just a picturesque walk along the magnificent moors.

Spring:

If you walk around on the dewed fields of Duncombe Park, you can hear the birds tweeting along around you. By the river bed, the sunshine-yellow daffodils stand up taking in the mild fresh air. Normally, you get hares and rabbits in the grassy green fields over looking the over grown hedges.

Why I love North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire is a great place to visit because it is full of beaches, trees, moors and lots of other wildlife related things.

Beaches

The coast is a very beautiful part of North Yorkshire. The sand is more soft and golden than any other beaches sand. You can make sand castles, you can get ice cream from an ice cream van and you can even dive into the deep, blue ocean. If you look very carefully you might even find a fossil.

The Moors

The moors are full of animal habitants the birds include: The Red Grouse, who can camouflage in the heather; the Red Kite, who have spiked tails; And Curlews, who have curled beaks. The heather is beautifully purple and sways gracefully in the gentle breeze.

"My favourite village is Helmsley in North Yorkshire..."

 

Why I love North Yorkshire

My favourite village is Helmsley in North Yorkshire because I have my school there I sometimes like climbing the trees that are easy to climb.

I liked going to Rievaulx Abbey there were a lot of rocks I liked to climb on there was a workshop where you could buy gifts from the abbey. There was a couple of buildings that I was excited to go in. The buildings were really high, there was a place where they read books and buried peoples body when they did which is in the middle on the grass.

In North Yorkshire at York me and my family sometimes we go to the cinema to watch cool movies and films, sometimes we go to Tenpin. And at Tenpin you can go bowling and you can go on arcades which are really cool.

Once me and my family went to Whitby beach. The beach is a beautiful place: it has warm water in the sea. I tried to build a big sand castle and awesomely big holes, the sand was shiny, gold and under the sand was a dark blue rock. After that I went on a boat and had a swim in it, it was really good on the boat we went on the bright, blue, shiny sea. And I got a bit hit by the water.

Once with my school I went to the North York Moors we were shown how to trap weasels. The traps were under rocks and had fake eggs to get them and one of them just lied on the rock wall. We saw the police to. We talked to the police about what they need to go for action. We had something to do as well we had a quest someone stole something and we had to say what the person was wearing. After that we went to the fireman and we talked about what people need for bad things not to happen and after that we talked about what bad things happened to people. We learned about some birds we got a sheet about a bird and we had different parts of birds and tried to make one that has sense to the sheet. In summer at Helmsley you can go to the swimming pool or you can go to the river you can throw rocks in the river as well.

"The north Yorkshire countryside is full of hidden ruins great for all the family"

 

Why I love North Yorkshire

                                                                                                                                                                                                             Spring

The North Yorkshire countryside is full of amazing old castles that are great fun to explore. They have high stone walls and exciting tunnels and passageways to get lost in. In North Yorkshire countryside there are some impressive Abbeys. They have some beautiful architecture. And some of the Abbeys are over five-thousand years old. The north Yorkshire countryside is full of hidden ruins great for all the family. With open spaces for kids to run around and amazing facts for adult to take in.

Winter

I love the rolling hills they are great fun to go sledging in the snow. North Yorkshire has loads of steep hills. I also like to take bags full of hay to sledge on as they go much faster down hills. I love the North York moors because I like to do long walks along the road and across the rugged moorland. I also like the traditional pubs along the moor. I also like the birds blending in to the heather. I like the twisted, turning streams that glide through the green vegetation. They are so much fun to play in on warm sunny day. They have secret islands in the middle to explore and discover.

Autumn  

North Yorkshire forest are full of enormous trees. There are fun attraction like go ape that are found in the very tops of these ancient trees, provided the most fun family days out. The forest walks take you on an adventure through the forest’s floor. The winding roads that pass through the Yorkshire dales take you back in time, through the old fashioned farmyards and across the cattle grids. The gated roads are fun as I take turns with my siblings to get out to open the gates.

                                                                              Summer                                                                                                                          

The beautiful Yorkshire beaches with their golden sands and crazing waves are stunning. They have impressive rock lifts that create perfect little bays with lovely old fashioned fishing villages. All so you could go to one off the great shows like the Yorkshire show in Harrogate or the Ryedale in Kirkbymoorside. With loads of entertainment and loads of stalls. And at the Yorkshire show there is loads of shearing competitions. If you like facts then come to one off the museums. Like the Ryedale folk museum or Eden camp full off facts from the Stone Age all the way to world war two. They both have an open space for kids to run around in.

"Scarborough, which has good fish and chips, is a really great place to visit in North Yorkshire..."

 

Why I love the North Yorkshire countryside

Blakey Ridge

Blakey Ridge is a very nice place: it has a very large, good public house. Also, I sometimes go to the building there. When I used to go to moorland day I found it quite interesting. One time, there was a dog called Floss. Sometimes I go to the building there to mostly have the same delicious burger.

Scarborough

Scarborough, which has good fish and chips, is a really great place to visit in North Yorkshire. You must go there because it has stunning beaches and delicious fish and chips. You can also get ice creams there and go shopping in supermarkets. Also, you must go to Scarborough castle because you can explore its past and walk in the long grass.

Dalby forest

Although I don’t go there a lot now, I used to go there a lot in the past. When I did go there, there was bike trails, cafes, car parks and more. Dalby forest is great, furthermore it has good bike trails.

Danby lodge

When I go to Danby, there’s so much to do. There is a forest and there is also a building. In the building there are facilities and a museum that you might want to explore. In the large, lush forest there are tall, slim trees.

Hutton-le- hole

Although it’s quite a small place, it takes one afternoon to explore. There’s some natural features such as the beck, which I’ve been in before. There’s also man made features such as Ryedale folk museum, which I‘ve been three before. Once was on a school trip and twice with my parents.

Also there is some animals and it explores history in Ryedale.

Why love North Yorkshire

Yorkshire is an incredible place, full of mystery and intrigue, but North Yorkshire is special, who knows how to describe the unique tapestries of fantastic fields, (of all colours) tremendous spaces, magnificent houses, stately homes and the most exhilarating coastlines in the world .We must be the luckiest people in the world to live among this stunning scenery.

The autumn is an incredible season here: it has got an overwhelming charm. You can see an array of colours up high in the trees, it looks spectacular (all the oranges and reds really bring out the best views of our fantastic forests). If you are lucky you might see an incredibly illusive king fisher with a bewitchingly bright breast hiding in the trees.

North Yorkshire isn’t just beautiful in autumn, oh no, in the freezing-cold winter, the bitterness does not matter. All you have to do is take a look at our snowy north moors to warm the cockles of your heart. All winter they are huge mounds of crisp white snow. It would look even better if you saw the sun slowly rising above them!

In the spring and summer, flowers bloom contently. In Helmsley, a quaint little market town, bright blinding yellow daffodils start to sprout by the river and young crocuses come back from the dead! It would look even better with the sun out.

It always amazes me that the sky blends in with the sea but here the sky meets the sea and it just makes our coastline a little more special. We have (and always will) the richest beaches in England, from our fantastic fossils to our silvery sand, even our chalky cliffs are special. If you look closely you could find an amazing ammonite or a fossilised fern!

Our Yorkshire dales are great for long walks and being at one with nature. You can see many rare animals of all shapes and sizes, like the super smooth snake or a brilliant black adder. A few years ago the tour de France came to the dales (because they heard how beautiful it is) so it has become more popular among tourists and why wouldn’t they want to come here? The iconic stone walls and mountainous regions make it an incredible, unique place for all ages to enjoy! Personally I like the lime stone pavements that honeycomb through the valleys.

Dalby forest is a great space, you can cycle, walk and swing on the high ropes. Sometimes you can go to a concert at night, you can enjoy the music in the great outdoors.

If you want to stay somewhere in a town instead of the middle of the beautiful country, we have a wide range of choice from Thirsk to Malton, York to Harrogate (my personal favourite) but why would you want to when you have got all of this wide open space.

So come to North Yorkshire if you want to be amazed!

"The scenery is amazing at the moors the lush green grass is jewelled when it rains..."

 

The North Yorkshire is an amazing place because you could go to the beautiful quiet moors. The noisy birds are tweeting and flying in the ocean blue sky. If you go to a river you might see a king fisher catching fish and fly away. The birds gliding in the sky like an eagle.

The rivers are flowing like a ribbon dancing. You can go to Duncombe Park and visit a river near their as it dances and the fish swim through the flowing sky blue river. You could go fishing near rivers when it’s warm

The scenery is amazing at the moors the lush green grass is jewelled when it rains, in the heather you could find grouse in their home. You could find conker trees near high street close the river and have a picnic around all the daisy’s and daffodils.

In winter you can bring a sled and slide down hills and build massive snow balls and roll them down the hills or build a snow man. You could roll on your side down the hills and have snow ball fights. You could feel the icy fence covered with soft fluffy snow.

In Summer, you could go to the sea and have fun on the sandy golden beach. At sunset you could go to the beach and look into the horizon. You could get ice cream go for long walks on the moors, see amazing animals and plants that grow on the moors. You could go to the sea and watch the water crash on the sand.

In Spring, the flowers are starting to grow hour by hour, petals start getting bigger smells and beautiful colours animals like deer rabbits cow sheep bulls are getting eating and drinking water. Horse’s leaping drinking water eating grass. Birds getting twigs to protect their eggs and get worms seeds to feast on while birds keep eggs warm.

 

Thank you to all the children from Helmsley School.
