North York Moors Heather Bloom

North York Moors Heather Bloom

August 2017

According to the North York Moors National Park Authority heather moorland is a rare habitat across the world. There’s less heather moorland across the globe than tropical rain forest and around seventy percent of the world’s total is in the UK. The largest continuous expanse of moorland in England and Wales is right here in the North York Moors.

This is a truly unique landscape and during the summer month of August and into early September the heather is in bloom with mile after mile of purple flowers. At its height the air is full of the smell of heather.

2017 has been a great summer, now it is time to look forward to Autumn!
