Yorkshire Dales and Lake District to be extended

Yorkshire Dales and Lake District to be extended

The Howgills - Yorkshire Dales National Park
Way back in 2011 we talked about the possible extension of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks in our Rohantime post It’s Official We Love the Lakes & Dales
After many delays Defra has just been announced it’s going to happen next August.

Two of England’s most renowned national parks are to be extended to create a vast area of almost continuous protected land. The Yorkshire dales will be increased by almost 24% and the Lake District by 3%, almost joining up the two to form the largest area of national park land stretching across Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire. The extension areas will come into effect next August. Read more from The Guardian

For further information and maps indicating the new boundaries, please visit the Defra pages of the gov.uk website
