Shorter walks for all

There is much of interest in the North York Moors ; well kept villages, castles and abbeys, rivers and countryside all easily accessible on a short walk. All the walks here are perfect for a the older, the younger or even those a bit short of time and completing each one will certainly give anyone a really good understanding of what makes this area tick. Each walk is under 5 miles, usually 2 or 3 and involves only limited uphill stretches but like all walks be kitted and booted and the walk is that much more enjoyable.
