    on the way back from visiting relatives we came back via the moors (which we do quite often )

    it was quite hazy higher up too, but a lovely sunny and hot day

    Love all that scenery, but you had a wicked time there. Those Rocks look dodgy dont they, wouldn't want to sit on the edge of one of them. Were there many there when you went.?

    there was a few guys there and one went on one of the edge ones and then he started to come back , he was unsteady and he laughed and said hes a rock climber should be ok with this lol


    there was about 6 people there and a ice cream van lol

    also a police bike and a unmarked police car ... and a mile up the road there was 2 fire engines ( i over heard one of them say one person had been killed on that road yesterday )

    That is minutes away from where I live, its odd to hear comments about how beautiful the scenery is when you see it so often, its easy to forget how beautiful it is.
     
  14. Beautiful pictures Yes! but I always think is it 'bleak' if you know what I mean

    That's always been my opinion of moorlands in Britain...they have a bleak wilderness look about them.But just imagine in Neolithic times around 5,000 years BC what those views in Yorkshire would have looked like covered in forest.

    Pollen samples show they were heavily forested with deciduous trees.Particles of charcoal also point to fire being used by our ancestors to clear the land of trees and create heathland.These forests had long disappeared by Roman times.The same thing happened in the Lake district.

    Yay! Pics of home! Thank you. I'm from Rochdale, originally, and have not been back up on the tops since I moved down south 20 years ago. We have Dartmoor, but it's just not the same, somehow.
