The above information is accurate to the best of my knowledge, but you should always let someone know where you are going and what time you should be home. If using a GPS device, take a map and compass. Remember that mobiles don’t always have a signal. Click here for more safety information.

Accurate GPS map
Brimham Rocks on Brimham Moor in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are owned by the National Trust. Sitting at a height of up to 30m, the rocks – formed by Millstone Grit and being eroded by water, wind and glaciation have formed some weird and wonderful shapes.
The car park is £5 (June 15) and is the start and end point for the walk. The route is very difficult to explain but the map gives an idea of a walk that can be done in under an hour. It would make a great family day out, so perhaps best to take a picnic on a nice day. The kids will love it, but personally I’m not great with heights so I would probably panic a little seeing my kids at the top of some of the rocks.
Half way around the walk were toilets and a cafe, which are situated next to the trig point.
