Over the Moors -not far away

A ride over the Moors is always spectacular. More so at this time of year when the heather is flowering. A carpet of purple. The sheep go about their daily lives quite unperturbed by visitors to their grazing places. As well as being on the Moors they act as lawnmowers around the houses in Hutton le Hole.It is only in late autumn they are rounded up to go to the sales.
Farmers can tell which belong to them by the coloured marks on their fleeces.
