 the park came into being on November 29 1952. It was the sixth area to be designated as a national park and the first in Yorkshire. It famously contains the largest area of open heather moorland in England plus other important landscapes and habitats including river valleys, wetlands, coastal cliffs and rocky shore, grassland, forest and woodland, hedgerows and traditionally managed farmland.
