Almscliffe Crag
A shot of the top of Almscliffe Crag, near Harrogate in Yorkshire. The crag is a millstone grit outcrop left isolated after the softer rocks - shales and mudstones - which surrounded it eroded away. Almscliffe Crag is one of the most popular climbing locations in the region and featured in the title sequence for "Emmerdale", which (as far as I know) is still filmed nearby.
