Welcome to Fylingdales Moor
Fylingdales Moor Conservation Area covers about 6,800 acres (2,750 ha) of moorland in the North York Moors National Park. The aim of the management for the moor 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.
