Ilkley Moor

Haystack Stone

Lovely walk today with my mate Angela on Ilkley moor.  Flippin’ cold but all togged up with snow gear trousers and trusty Berghaus was fine!

The Haystack stone has some prehistoric carvings on it.  Called cup and ring carvings, they are found all over the world.  there’s a lot of theories about them but nobody really knows what they mean or why the were carved.

Didn’t see a lot of wildlife apart from a few grouse and a kestrel.

A good old chat, catching up and putting world to

rights, then a picnic of hot chocolate with Baileys and a mince pie.

Thanks Angie!

If you plan to visit Yorkshire, Ilkley Moor is one of its wonders.  Beautiful scenery, wildlife and history.
