YORKSHIRE - ILKLEY MOOR

Ilkley Moor
This weekend we took some time to explore our new local area. The weather was a little hit and miss up in Yorkshire - especially Saturday and Sunday but I'm adapting and quite enjoying the spontaneity of the rain, ha!

We got in the car and drove only 15 minutes up the road to Ilkley Moor, which is actually another thing I'm getting used - driving everywhere! I'm so used to figuring out a train/tube/bus to get places in London that it's quite a novelty to just get in the car and not really face much traffic at all.

The weather was pretty dull and grey but the view was definitely worth the climb up to the top.

This is how I imagined spending my time up here - going for countryside walks, getting some fresh air and seeing some pretty spectacular views.  Not bad at all.

  1. Oooh the heather is out! I guess it's nearing the end of its season now though. Every time we drive down to Yorshire we miss it!
