Blakey Ridge Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout North York Moors...

Lying at the highest point in the North Yorkshire Moors close to Rosedale Abbey, this is a sumptuous area of heather moorland punctuated by a number of ancient monastic crosses. There’s only one public house - The Blakey Inn - but it is one of the remotest in Britain.

From here (clutching a pint of real ale) you can spot the grave of a Bronze Age chieftain and a Neolithic burial mound. The pub is also on the Coast-to-Coast walk.
