    Boo hoo [​IMG] Been a great week away despite the weather. Had a walk every day and didn't get a soaking, at this time of year not bad. Ilkley is a lovely litle town very clean, grafitti clear and no signs of any hooliganism. Walk over Baht'at moor was grand, great views. No offense to any other areas but I have to say it's easy to see why Yarkie land is known as "gods own county". Enjoyed it so much we've booked again for a week in February. Now cabined up for the day as it's p.. p.. persistently raining down. :BigGrin:

    That doesn't look too much of a problem - or is it ?

    Scares me to death with FWD and no grip. I was in Scotland Feb 2008 and there was that much snow but It meant I only just got up some hills. Needed a delicate foot to scrabble up them. I was showing -4 one morning. It was beautiful though. All the animal tracks and everything looks so clean.

    Think that it's a wonderful sight fresh snow when you look out, snow covering tree branches, and every thing looking so clean. Then for a hearty fried breakfast before venturing out, to take some film.

    Twas -10 at Cononley :Eeek: We try only to move the van to get there and back. In saying that we had to take it to Midgleys in Skipton for a job to be done and had no problems. :BigGrin:

    Are you one of the last die hard film users ?

    Hi......we also like Ilkley. Very interested in which site you used as we are on the lookout for a good site. Trust it was okay, and how far from the town was it ?.......thanks in anticipation......Crindle.
