The countryside around Sutton Bank is one of Britain’s best-kept secrets. It’s easy to get away from the crowds. There are ruined abbeys and castles, ancient monuments, teetering crags, sweeping views, quaint villages, famous landmarks and rolling hills waiting to be discovered.
There are four trails in this app that accompanies you around the area, giving you facts, photos and a quiz to take part in.
- The first trail starts in the pretty village of Kilburn, and takes you through rolling fields and woods to lovely Scotch Corner Chapel.
- The second trail is a favourite with everyone. It’s the classic walk from Sutton Bank to the famous White Horse of Kilburn and back along the escarpment edge.
- The third trail features one of Yorkshire’s scenic treasures, Lake Gormire, and a glorious stretch of the Cleveland Way.
All three trails feature a fun trivia quiz. Look for clues in the landscape around you and test your knowledge of the North York Moors.
- Trail number four is a chance for a family challenge! Find the trail posts dotted around the grounds of Sutton Bank National Park Centre grounds and try to answer all the questions before anyone else.
