Birch Woodland and Gritstone.


Despite the bright sunshine of the last few days it has been rather cold. The golden sunshine really lit up today’s visit to a Birch Woodland that borders wild heather moorland.

This woodland has many small Yorkshire Gritstone crags and boulders. There are signs of quarrying in past times. You can see rows of shallow holes chiselled into boulders that were used to split the rock into useful blocks.

The dogs love exploring the boulders especially when they can get to the height of my head and try for a face lick!
