Selby YorkshireSelby lies in Yorkshire, the largest of all England's counties. In the northwest of the county lies the Yorkshire Dales National Park, a lovely patchwork of limestone hills, gentle valleys and the high peaks of Whernside, Pen-y-ghent and Ingleborough. The classical Yorkshire Dales spread to the north from the market and spa towns of Settle, Skipton, Ilkley and Harrogate in North Yorkshire, with most of the larger southern dales such as Ribblesdale, Malhamdale and Airedale, Wharfedale and Nidderdale running roughly parallel from north to south, and the more northerly dales including Wensleydale, Swaledale and Teesdale running generally from west to east. The North York Moors is the county's other national park, with bleak upland moors and a magnificent rugged coastline. To the southeast of the region lie the Yorkshire Wolds, formed from chalk hills that arc from the Humber estuary west of Kingston upon Hull up to the North Sea coast between Bridlington and Scarborough.

Attractions Selby Abbey, The Crescent, Selby, North Yorkshire YO8 4PU Tel. 01757 703123. Selby Abbey is unique in the North of England, as the first monastery to be founded in the North after the Norman Conquest and one of the few in England to have survived as a parish church. Benedict of Auxerre founded the abbey. It escaped the Dissolution of the Monasteries, and although part was pulled down, the central nave survived and in 1618 it became the parish church of Selby. It overlooks Selby's market place with its market cross of 1790, a bustling place of activity on Monday market days. www.selbyabbey.org.uk. In the centre of Selby.
