Poppy says...

Poppy’s story talks about Dalby Forest 

Dalby Observatory (along with Sutton Bank and Danny) are Dark Sky Discovery sites in the Milky Way Class - because this galaxy is often visible to the naked eye from these areas.

CPRE have long campaigned to ensure our dark skies remain free from light pollution.



CPRE’s Emma Marrington who works hard to promote and protect our dark skies and tranquillity is one of the judges of our competition!


Finlay should perhaps be writing for the ad agencies who promote tourism in North Yorkshire as this story tells and sells our wonderful county!  We really do have it all don’t we?  We should celebrate and maybe see the world more through the eyes of the younger generations!

This is latest of the entries in the school’s writing competition to be uploaded.  Check daily as we post new ones each day.  We’re also publishing some of the entries on our face book page, to get there - click on the facebook icon at the bottom of our home page.

As Finlay says - visit our rocky coasts

North Yorkshire and Cleveland Heritage Coast running from Saltburn to Scalby Mills near to Scarborough is 36 miles long!  


Fish & Chips well we’re biased - North Yorkshire is home to the best fish ’n’ chips is the entire world.

Could it be Castle Howard?

My North Yorkshire by Emilia

There is a house near a big long lake

The are some little sheep

You can swim in the lake

Where could this be?  Castle Howard? 



One of the entries from Key stage 1 at Helmsley CP School which covers ages 5-7 

Hambleton and surrounding area has a racing history going back to the 17th century!  There are famous trainers across North Yorkshire with the famous Middleham yards and Easterby’s outside the National Park

Here is one trainer at Hambleton within the North York Moors National Park.


Jack, did you know the horses at Bryan Smart Racing even have their own jacuzzi and solarium!

Ted's story.....

Ted, we love your story and the illustrations and your hand-writing.  (We’re really sorry we couldn’t fit all your wonderful illustration on our scanner.)

Ted thinks the North York Moors is one of the only moors in the whole entire world….

so, here are some facts to add to Ted’s story:

The NYMNP is England’s most densely wooded national park with forests covering 22% of it’s area.

Heather moorland, whilst rare elsewhere covers one-third of our NYMNP creating the largest acreage of such habitat in England and Wales.  

The forests and moors of the North York Moors provides homes for the wild variety of animal and bird life Ted talks about in this story.

CPRENorthYorkshire is one of the very few (we think we might be the only..) charities in  the CPRE network to campaign to promote, protect and enhance TWO national parks!  

for more park info visit:


and the ‘other’ national  park in the Dales




The best place in the whole wide world!  Indeed it is Patryk which is why CPRENorthYorkshire works so hard to enhance and protect our wonderful county!

Patiyk's was one of the typewritten entries which don't  reproduce too well on our web site so we've take the liberty of adding some back ground colour and a photograph
