    The River Derwent, its tributaries and wetlands are highly valued for their landscape and nature conservation. This largely rural catchment extends from the North York Moors through to a more undulating landscape, then flat, low-lying land near the confluence of the River Derwent and tidal River Ouse. The seaside resort of Scarborough is the largest urban area, while inland there are dispersed market towns and villages, including Stamford Bridge, Malton, Norton, Helmsley, Pickering and Pocklington.
