On 1st August 2016 the National Park boundaries changed
and the village of Orton became part of
'Yorkshire Dales National Park '.
Leading up to the event, school children were involved in workshops to make birds and field mice
which were displayed in the Market Hall for the Grand Opening.
Many children from school attended on the day and enjoyed pond dipping, scavenger hunts, badge making and mini raft building.
