Brimham Rocks
Brimham Rocks
Taken from next to the National Trust Building. Brimham’s rocks are mainly made out of Millstone Grit. The unusual shaping of the rocks happened during the last Ice Age. Some 18,000 years ago, an ice cap covered the northern Pennines. At times, part of the rock bed stood out above the ice, exposed to fierce winds blowing off the ice cap and carrying tiny particles of ice, sand and other debris. The rocks were sandblasted into new shapes, particularly at ground level where the winds were strongest. (Details from NT website).
