West Yorkshire moorlands, along the Pennines, Yorkshire, England. West Yorkshire was created as a metropolitan county in 1974, with a population of 2.2 million. The Pennines (English pronunciation: /ˈpenaɪnz/) are a mountain range separating Northwest England from Yorkshire and North East England. Britain’s first long distance footpath, The Pennine Way, runs the full length of the Pennine chain and is 429 km (268 miles) long. It’s a long walk, but I believe I would give it a go for this view alone.
This image is so evocative of Wuthering Heights, the Bronte sisters, Heathcliff, and other literary angst I was sorely tempted to digress into a brief monologue dissertation about the Brontes. This area is so breathtaking, however, I believe I shall wait a few posts as an excuse to show you- well, more moorlands. Sorry. Waxing articulate eloquence is not always easy.
