Yorkshire at Winter
Posted on 26th October 2023 at 13:26
Why don't Yorkshire puddings go out in the winter?... Because they might get BATTERED by the cold!
During the winter months, Yorkshire's landscape could be compared to a winter wonderland!
For intance, the iconic North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales are often blanketed in snow durinf the winter season. The moorland take on a serene, white appearance.
If there's no snow, the valleys and rivers are very likely to be frosty. Valleys such as Swaledale, often have frost-covered trees and shrubs. Rivers may also partially freeze which creates beautiful icy patterns. In addition, the woodlands, like those in the Yorkshire Arboretum or Strid Wood, take on a magical quality with bare branches dusted with snow or frost.
Furthermore, Yorkshire is known for its warm hospitality, and in winter, there's nothing quite like enjoying a pint or a cup of tea in front of a roaring fire in one of the region's many historic pubs or quaint tearooms.
Just the fact that it is winter may bring new light to some of the historic sights in Yorkshire. Castles, abbeys, and ruins such as Castle Howard, Fountains Abbey, or Whitby Abbey, stand in stark contrast against the winter landscape, offering a hauntingly beautiful scene.
What To Get Up To During The Winter
