Goathland - Out & About
Goathland is a village deep in the North York Moors,
off the A169 between Pickering and Whitby. It is surrounded by
beautiful scenery and has its own station on the North Yorkshire
Moors steam railway line.
This picturesque village is the setting for the popular
television series Heartbeat, and filming may occasionally be seen
throughout the year.
The village itself ages back to Viking times with plenty of its
curious history still evident and tame black faced sheep still
graze the village commons and nearby moorland.
Olde worlde shops and quaint tea-rooms will transport you back
in time, while the surrounding countryside will simply take your
breath away. Goathland is an ideal base for walkers, cyclists and
enthusiasts of nature or steam.
There is a regular bus service through this village, bus number
840, X40 or 842.
