Area of Operations

The Trust operates in an area from Staithes in the north, to Ravenscar in the south, and up the Esk Valley as far as Westerdale. The area includes some of the country’s finest landscapes and seascapes: National Park, Heritage Coast and many other important scientific, environmental and historical designations. But its picturesque towns and villages mask areas of social deprivation, often made worse by the sparsity of population and isolation.
