The Society was formed on 2nd December 1963 and is based on the administrative district of Ryedale. It is responsible for 800 kilometre squares with Kirkbymoorside at an approximate centre. Our area is defined by the northern watershed running from Black Hambleton to Saltersgate; the Whitby to Thornton-le-Dale road to the east and the drove road along the edge of the Hambleton Hills to the west. Our southern boundary is less easy to describe but generally includes the Howardian Hills as far as Malton and the Kirkham Gorge, following the 75 grid line.
There are approximately 60 members and the Society has seven indoor meetings, usually on the third Tuesday of the month in Kirkbymoorside, and at least four outdoor trips during the year. New members are always welcome (please contact the Secretary, Tom Denney). Our programme for 2008 is:
