    An Ilkley Moor Bimble

    Post  Paulus on Wed Mar 05, 2014 2:28 am

    For anyone who may be free next Tuesday, 11 March 2014, a few of us are gathering by the car park at the Cow & Calf rocks (NOT the Cow & Calf Hotel) around 11am, for a wander to check out some of the sites on the moor above - including the Woofa Bank Enclosure and its cluster of cup-and-ring carvings; the Roms Law circle, the Great Skirtfuls tombs, etc. Bring food & sustenance with you.

    No mate - there#s another Woofa Bank on the eastern side of Ilkley Moor - onto Burley Moor, near the Little Skirtful of Stones. We're gonna go see this fella here - http://megalithix.wordpress.com/2012/10/22/woofa-bank-enclosure/

    Hi Paul and Dan

    Just a quick one to say a huge 'Thanks' for inviting James and I on the walk on Rombalds moor on Tuesday - amazing - just amazing!

    I cant quite get my head around how to upload photos just yet so here is a link to a pic of the 'Apostles at Sunset' on my blog

    http://smackedpentax.wordpress.com/2014/03/12/neolithic-sunset/

    Paul - I sent you a message - if you don't get it please give me a shout. I have some things for you and some ideas for your book.

    Cheers

    James

    Superb photo James, I enjoyed the day out
    I put a tutorial on awhile ago http://northernantiquarian.forumotion.net/t610-posting-photo-s-tutorial
    but since Photobucket has changed the layout by adding an organize on/off button to get bulk links :- click it on highlight the photos you want then click the link button at the bottom of the page

    I've done a small Blog http://teddytourteas.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/ey-up.html
    I'll put some more photo's on here in a bit :- http://northernantiquarian.forumotion.net/t695-an-ilkley-moor-bimble
