Win a family pass on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and #MadeInNorthYorkshire print by Hannah Turlington.

Win a family pass to ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway!

Earlier in the year we had a record response to our North Yorkshire Moors Railway competition with over 800 entries. We’re now giving NY Now readers another chance to enjoy an unforgettable experience on Britain’s most popular heritage railway by entering our October competition.

Running along 24 miles of steep inclines and spectacular landscapes, passengers can enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery in Yorkshire from the comfort of a steam or heritage diesel train. Services run Northbound from Pickering to Whitby via Levisham, Newton Dale Halt, Goathland and Grosmont stations and Southbound from Whitby or Grosmont to Pickering via Grosmont, Goathland, Newtondale Halt and Levisham.

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is a not-for-profit charitable organisation with hundreds of volunteers helping to keep things moving. Over 300,000 visitors travel on the railway every year, with each one helping to preserve one of the earliest and most historic lines. Find out more at www.nymr.co.uk

Win a print by Hannah Turlington

In the picturesque village of Thornton-le-Dale lives Hannah Turlington, a talented printmaker who creates and hand prints surface pattern designs and artworks. Hannah takes inspiration from everyday life in North Yorkshire. The countryside, people, places and history of the county.

Hannah’s current focus is on surface pattern design in the form of wallpaper and fabric, and she believes that art and design should be a part of everyday life.

Hannah said “I start my work by collecting objects or taking photographs, I then draw them in my own stylised way then transfer it to the vinyl lino then the carving process begins. It can take up to 40 hours to create certain pieces. I then create test prints experimenting with colours – I especially like printing in colours that are not true to life as I feel it gives a different dimension to the prints.”

"I find lino a really engaging medium and it is almost addictive. Its tactile and responsive nature means that every mark made is going to have an impact on the final printed piece.

“Thornton-le-Dale is such a wonderful place to live and work. We’re just on the edge of the North York Moors National Park so there’s an abundance of beauty right on my doorstep. I’m so lucky to call North Yorkshire my home.”
