The MadGang Go For A Walk On Brimham Moor (March 2014)

We had been to Brimham Rocks in North Yorkshire before (see my post THE MADGANG GO TO BRIMHAM ROCKS for photos) but we had never explored the moor that surrounds them. A couple of Saturdays ago we rectified that situation with a brisk walk on and below its eastern flank. Here are some of the photographs that I took.

The MadGang Go For A Walk On Brimham Moor (March 2014) — 4 Comments

  1. Are the rock formations in the lower pics human-made? Speaking of which: love those rock walls!

    Nice pups, nice pics, MP.

  2. Great photos. What is that green stuff? We don’t have green stuff on the ground here. Ours is either white or brown these days. Good to see your handsome critters too. I especially love the first photo. Thanks.

  3. Brimham Rocks (at SE2065) are balancing rock formations 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 Millstone Grit being eroded by water, glaciation and wind, most of which have achieved amazing shapes. Many formations have been named, though imagination is required and the correct viewing angle is helpful. Examples include the Sphinx, the Watchdog, the Camel, the Turtle and the Dancing Bear.

    Brimham Rocks feature in the Bee Gees’ video ‘You Win Again”‘.
