A great website linking you to all the information you need to know about the diverse and exciting county of Yorkshire. All the main events, places to stay and visit all around the county laid out in an easy to use format.
This website promotes the town of Richmond listing the main events and where to stay. Being proud of Richmond, it boasts that the town remains one of the most beautiful and rewarding places to visit in the country. Richmond grew up around the castle founded by the Normans in 1071, built on the 'riche-mont' or 'strong-hill' that gave the town its name.
Following the establishment of the National Park in 1954, the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority became an independent body, within the framework of local government, in 1997. We provide some services similar to those provided elsewhere by district and county councils. For example, we are the local planning authority. Most of the things we do, however, are particular to national park authorities.
