I finish work for good at the end of April, and my boss has been kind enough to allow me to work from home a lot. This means I finish at 4 and can be away. My grandson has been staying with us for a couple of days, and in order to drag him away from the XBox I suggested we go for a walk on the moors.
He is always up for a walk, he enjoys it as much as I do. Shirl was planning on making his favourite – home made lasagna, so we couldn’t be long.
I wanted to take him somewhere he hadn’t been before – somewhere that didn’t take an age to get to, and seeing that he has been to just about all the interesting places on the moor I was racking my brains.
Then I remembered the Badger Stone – about 20 minutes walk from the car, the views are stunning and the place has interest. It is a smallish stone on its own on the moors and completely covered in prehistoric rock art.
It is very mysterious and the setting is gorgeous, especially as it was such a nice day.
We could see for miles, right across to the Yorkshire Dales far away.
Eventually we set off back home – to Shirl and her delicious home made lasagna (and I had a beer)..
