The Parish Council has received information from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority regarding the bid to obtain International Dark Skies Reserve status. This means that the area will celebrate the exceptional dark skies that enable us to see into the night sky and view all the wonders that are there.
The Yorkshire Dales is already the third darkest National Park and has done a great deal to promote good practice in restricting the light during darkness and to enthuse the next generation with these ideas.
To assist with this process a Dark sky Festival was held between 14th February and 1st March.
