Work continues on the gates and the entrances, whilst the weather has smiled today; making a change from the howling gales, bone chilling rain, and river of mud conditions in the Park of late.
Looking around, it was hard to believe that it is only 12 January. The grass is more spring green, than winter pale; the sky, a brilliant blue with white wisps and black wings; and the songbirds are twittering away searching for ‘the one’. A good day for shiver free walk in the Park, to find that slimmer, fitter new you.
It feels good now to walk across the open expanse of Little Kelcliffe, and feel part of the wider landscape – Hawksworth Moor to the left, Wharfedale to the right, and the impressive Victorian expanse of High Royds in front. Quite different, to picking a careful way along a mucky track through the tangled and hummocky overgrowth – it will be great when we can get the hedge around the copse under control again and properly laid. Thank you Gentlemen of Pudsey Landscapes for putting up with the dreadful weather to give back to we Guiseley folk some simply pleasure. However, I think a cold snap is forecast, so get those thermals, and ice picks out !!
