Jo Collins – LEADER Programme Officer
The North York Moors, Coast and Hills LEADER Programme has funded more than 300 projects in our local rural area over the past five years. Many of these projects are interesting, unique and well worth visiting.
The third in the series of Top Five Projects ‘Top Five Hidden History Gems!’ highlights some of the buildings and monuments which have received LEADER funding to protect and restore the special structures or promote access and provide information for visitors.

Follow the Temple Moore Trail to discover one of Victorian England’s greatest church architects. He also happened to design the building which is now the National Park Authority’s Headquarters (it was originally a Vicarage).
And that’s only two out of the five.
