Autumn Colours At Wharncliffe Crags

We had a ride up to Wharncliffe Crags yesterday, we've known about this place for ages but have never been able to find a way to get up there. We bit the bullet and went for it, then after a bit of scouting, we found that Station Road in Deepcar was the best place to park. There is a public footpath off that road which leads into the woods and then you basically follow the paths that lead upwards.

It's a very picturesque place, the Autumn trees against the golden brown of the bracken were beautiful. The view of Deepcar and Stocksbridge from the top of the crags is fantastic, only marred slightly by the numerous power lines in the area.

I'm so glad we went yesterday, today it's blowing a gale and the rain is lashing down, not fit for venturing far from the sofa!
