The North York Moors are a national park in North Yorkshire. Relation 409150 (XML, Potlatch2, iD, JOSM, history, analyze, manage, gpx).


National parks were created after the publication of the NPE so there are no or few usable map sources for the boundary. An explanation of the boundary added to OSM follows below. The boundary as represented in OSM is a rough boundary only and cannot be regarded as a complete or accurate boundary. Other people who know the North York Moors National Park are encouraged to edit the boundary if they think it is wrong.
