Hackness 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 point where Lowdale Beck merges into the River Derwent, this superbly-placed village has an 11th century church built on top of a nunnery established by St Hilda in the 7th century and an 18th century Hall, the seat of Lord Derwent, which is not open to the public.

The area has remarkable variety and the delightful Forge Valley is replete with watercourses, forests, picturesque dales and undisturbed wildlife.
