Brimham Rocks is located in Nidderdale, near Pately Bridge, in North Yorkshire. The rocks are scattered over 50 acres of moorland and they are of some if the most truly amazing shapes and formations that I have seen. The rocks have been formed over millions of years and their strange shapes have arisen due to the way they were originally sedimented and then subsequently eroded.
Some of rocks have been given names such as The Bear. This particular rock formation does look like a bear when viewed from a certain angle. Some of the formations are fairly small while others are truly massive in both width and height. The property is managed by the National Trust and although it's free to look around the rocks there is a charge for the car park which is fair enough.
It's easy to spend at least half a day at Brimham Rocks. There are many good walks some with stunning views not to mention all the weird and wonderful rock formations that you'll see. Choose a sunny day, pack a picnic basket then go and take a look around. Brimham Rocks are well worth a visit.
