Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales is home to outstanding scenery, great castles, abbeys and a breathtakingly peaceful atmosphere. At its heart are two very special protected areas – Yorkshire Dales National Park and Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) – as well as it having the Forest of Bowland AONB and North Pennines AONB as its close neighbours. These protected areas are truly not to be missed.

Each of the Yorkshire Dales has a different character. The Southern Dales are less remote, yet still wildly beautiful. The Northern Dales provide wild heather moorland and valleys full of hay meadows, dry stone walls and barns. And in the West, the pretty villages and small towns each have their own charm. The Dales are worth a visit at any time of year – whether it’s to visit a snug country pub with an open fire in the winter months, or stay in a rambling riverside cottage for a summer break. The possibilities are endless!

The course is completely free. If you choose residential there will be some small contribution to cover our costs.  The full week course can be completed one day at a time over the different course dates.  Also, the course can be offered to a Church fellowship and can be run during the week on different days or at weekends.  The course is very flexible but the full week must be completed to receive the certificate to graduate.  Group interaction is very important and we set a minimum of ten students and a maximum of 15 to enable students to participate and get to know each other.
