Ilkley Moor - Path Erosion
Many of the paths on the moor are heavily used by walkers, runners, and more recently mountain bikers leading to some serious path erosion. Work is underway to repair badly affected sections of path using flagstones from demolished mills. Some of these flagstones are being flown in by helicopter due to the inaccessibility of these paths by normal vehicles.
This picture was taken at Whetstones, a vantage point from where you can see into the Wharfe valley and beyond in one direction, and into the Aire valley and beyond in the other direction (Listers Mill chimney is plainly visible in the Bradford direction).
