This is looking towards the ‘Skipton side’ of the moors. Not a place I visit too often – probably because it isn’t as easy for me to get to as the Ilkley side.
If you blow up the photographs you can see where the lush green fields stop and the brown moorland starts.
But recently I have started exploring this side, and I like what I am finding.
There are some big Iron Age enclosures around here, as well as mysterious old crosses and some burial mounds.
I’ll post more about these shortly – please stay tuned…
