One of the little becks that flows down off Ilkley Moor. A 'beck' is another word for a stream, and is commonly used in the north of England. You can see from the picture how the valley sides climb steeply from the town and then level off into a plateau. Further up, there are mysterious stones carved with cup-and-ring markings, dating from the Bronze Age, and a 2000-year-old stone circle called the Twelve Apostles. Sadly, I didn't have time to go as far as that on my walk.
