This is fairly typical south Pennines scenery, south of Skipton. The long and very tough grass is always a sign of very wet ground but it’s also tough enough to stop you sinking too far in. The stone in the wall says this is a gritstone area. There are basically two kinds of landscape in the pennines – gritstone and limestone. Each has a distinctive look, leading to the names given to these areas in the Derbyshire Peak District – the Dark Peak (gritstone) and White Peak (limestone).
