A Trip to the Moors

Ilkley Moors

It's my birthday tomorrow (the big 2-1), so my family came to visit me up in Leeds this weekend and we took a little trip to the Ilkley Moors. We arrived moments after the sun had set yesterday evening, which made for some dark, dramatic lighting and fairly dangerous walking. I didn't bring my Canon along so instead took some snaps on my phone, which really couldn't do the rugged beauty of the place justice. Afterwards we warmed up in The Cow and Calf Inn up on the moorlands, where we drank mulled cider next to an open fire - like something straight out of a Brontë novel.

It's a beautiful place no matter what time of the year, and is well worth a visit if you ever get the chance. Have you ever been walking up in the North before?
