Hole of Horcum- North York Moors

The Hole of Horcum is on the North York Moors and there are so many legends and tales as to why it exists. It is 400ft deep and there are lots of tracks to take, such as a five-mile trail to levisham Moor.


The Moors are also full of ancient remains from different eras of history. Along one of the tracks, you can spot the steam trains from levisham. For wildlife lovers, there are all sorts of animals hiding in the heather such as Stoat, Wheatear, Adders and Curlew.



The Moors became a national park in 1952 and there are hundreds of trails such as A Mediaeval Adventure and the Royal Forest of Pickering.

This is only part 1 of my trails around the moors, so look out for the next tale and trail I discover.
