THE MADGANG GO TO BRIMHAM ROCKS

The BRIMHAM ROCKS are balancing rock formations located on Brimham Moor in North Yorkshire, England. The rocks stand at a height of nearly 30 metres in an area owned by the National Trust which is part of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are many variations of rock formations, caused by the Millstone Grit being eroded by water, glaciation and wind, most of which have achieved amazing shapes. Many of the formations have been named, though some imagination is required and the correct viewing angle is helpful. Examples are The Sphinx, The Watchdog, The Camel, The Turtle and The Dancing Bear. Brimham Rocks features in the Bee Gees' video 'You Win Again"'. (WIKIPEDIA)

  1. Spectacular! I absolutely loves these. My favourites are the tree growing out of the rock and the second last one, viewed from the rocks overlooking the hills. The contrast of rock and green is one that really appeals to me. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks, everybody. I’m glad you enjoyed the picks. We had a really great day and I would recommend a visit to the rocks for anybody who finds themselves in the Dales. I nearly never went because the car park charge was £4. But I’m glad I swallowed hard and paid up because it was well worth it.
