Danby

The village of Danby is situated in the North York Moors National Park at the head of the Esk Valley. The village itself boasts a pretty village green where you will often see Scottish Blackface sheep grazing, a village store, bakery and cafe, post office and public house.

On the outskirts of the village is the Moors National Park Centre. This is housed in a former hunting lodge and is surrounded by large gardens with some lovely woodland walks and paths along the riverside. There are indoor and outdoor play facilities for children and all the family will enjoy discovering more about the area from the interactive exhibits in the centre.

Danby is the ideal base for exploring the North York Moors and is conveniently located for visits to Whitby, around fifteen miles to the east. The village is also served by public transport with a bus service and regular trains running between Whitby and Middlesbrough along the beautiful Esk Valley.

The remains of the 14th century Danby Castle, once the home of Catherine Parr, is just over a mile from the village centre on Danby Rigg. Today, it is the setting for weddings and corporate events and visitors can view the castle by arrangement with the Tenant.

A walk up the 229 metres high Danby Beacon will reward visitors with lovely panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The beacon dates back as far as the 1600s, when it formed part of a line of beacons used to warn of foreign fleets approaching. The RAF used the location for an early warning radar station between 1937 and 1954 but today, visitors will just see the tall, stainless steel and bronze beacon, which was unveiled in 2008.

If you are fortunate enough to visit Danby in August, the annual Agricultural Show provides traditional entertainment, from exhibitions of farm animals to sheepdog trials and craft and local produce competitions.
