March 26th, 2020 : Brimham Rocks

Quote:
The natural spectacle of Brimham Rocks, with its giant rock formations, was created by an immense river 100 million years before the first dinosaurs walked the earth, and a visit to this amazing landscape is truly a journey into pre-history.


Quote:
The rocks, sculpted by 320 million years of movement of entire continents as well as hundreds of thousands of years of ice, rain and wind, have taken on weird and wonderful shapes and with a little imagination, they resemble familiar creatures. Visitors are free to explore the site, spotting the Dancing Bear, the Gorilla, the Eagle and the Turtle, whilst the more nimble can crawl through the Smartie Tube and balance on the Rocking Stones.


Quote:
Some of the most iconic rock formations can be viewed only 10 minutesí walk from the car park, and it takes around four hours to explore all of this fascinating site, with its enduring landscape and carefully managed environment.



Quote:
Brimham Rocks and its heather moorland are both Sites of Special Scientific Interest and are a magnet for geologists, naturalists, climbers and walkers, as well as families who love the freedom to explore this amazing place.

Used to go there frequently as a child. Often combined with a visit to Uncle Arthur and Auntie Hilda who weren't really relatives at all, but former neighbors of my grandma. They would always do a roast beef dinner, Hilda cooked and Arthur was an expert carver. As well as wafer thin slices of beef, he would butter the whole wheat bread before slicing and carve that thinly too.
