Blakey Ridge Car Park

Blakey Ridge Car Park

Blakey Bank, Church Houses, North Yorkshire, YO62 7LQ

Car park located high upon the moors used by walkers by day and great for stargazing at night. It’s proximity to the road may mean the odd passing car’s headlights might cause a little annoyance! However this is offset by there being a pub about a mile up the road!


Blakey Ridge Car Park is a Go Stargazing Site. The location has been identified by the Go Stargazing team as a good location for stargazing based on local light pollution levels, distance from nearby towns and cities and offers a safe place to park.
