North Pennines AONB

This is one of England’s most special places – a stunning landscape of open heather moors and peatlands, attractive dales and hay meadows, tumbling upland rivers, wonderful woods, welcoming communities, intriguing imprints of a mining and industrial past, distinctive birds, animals and plants and much, much more. In recognition of its special qualities the area has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The North Pennines is also a European and Global Geopark – highlighting its globally important Earth heritage.

The AONB Partnership is the body responsible for co-ordinating efforts to conserve and enhance the North Pennines.
