Flylingdales conservation area

Much of the challenge crosses Fylingdale’s moor which is now preserved by the Hawk and Owl trust.

Fylingdales Moor conservation area covers about 6,800 acres (2,750 ha) of moorland in the North York Moors National Park.

The aim is to create a nationally important haven for wildlife and archaeology.

A former grouse moor, the land is now managed by the Hawk and Owl Trust to enhance wildlife, preserve archaeological remains and demonstrate the environmental benefit and sustainability of traditional moorland management techniques.
