Middleton Tyas is an old Copper mining village and looking closely there are still a few reminders of its past, we have some beautiful walks that take in the fine country side that surround us and is on the doorstep of Richmond, the first of all Richmond’s of the world, the Yorkshire Dales market town, with Norman castle, Georgian architecture, large cobbled market place, monuments and abbeys, the fast flowing river Swale, and breathtaking scenery. Situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Richmond is a town that inspires painters and poets, past and present….
