Rievaulx is a village in the picturesque valley of Ryedale on the edge of the North York Moors. It is famous for its ruined Cistercian abbey, which became in the 18th century the focal point for a notable landscape garden (Rievaulx Terrace) on the estate of a nearby country house, Duncombe Park. It is also well known to industrial archaeologists as the site of an important 16th-century water-powered iron-smelting furnace. Vernacular houses of the 17th and 18th centuries and a medieval church or capella ante portis, restored by Temple Moore in 1906, add further interest to the small settlement.
ASSESSMENT AND CHARACTERISATION
Berwick is an historic border town of great distinction, important for its medieval and Elizabethan ramparts, such buildings as its Commonwealth-era Church and early 18th-century Barracks, and a streetscape composed largely of 18th and early-19th-century houses. Two satellite settlements, Tweedmouth and Spittal, have distinctive though less well-known histories in which fishing and other industries bulk large. All three settlements have Conservation Areas.

With support, advice and grants from English Heritage and Natural England, primarily through a Higher Level Stewardship scheme, the farmer has put in place a presentation and interpretation scheme and encouraged access to the land, and turned his existing tea room and farm shop into a small but profitable visitor centre.
