Explore the dramatic moorland rock formations of Brimham Rocks in Yorkshire
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.
We arrived shortly before sunset, we had the whole landscape to ourselves and it felt ethereal and other-worldly.
“shaped by a million winters”
The rocks, sculpted by 320 million years of ice, wind, and the movement of entire continents, have taken on weird and wonderful shapes and with a little imagination, they resemble familiar creatures.
“Here, you can spot the Dancing Bear, the Gorilla, the Eagle and the Turtle”
Nearby to this area of Nidderdale and nestled in the hills is the picturesque village of Pateley Bridge. Enjoy loads of slow time. No rush. Relaxed fireside reading. And breathe out.
