A North Dean Woods Winter.

North Dean Woods are a typical example of British Woodland through the ages. They can be found on the outskirts of Greetland, Calderdale stretching from the valley bottom alongside the River Calder to the top of the hill, just below Norland. There are many paths to walk through the wood, but for these sets of pictures I took the one that starts at Wilson Bridge alongside St Stephens Church, up through the woods along North Dean Road, before following a woodland Path and finishing just before Donkey Bridge which is below Pickwood Lane, Norland.

There had been a reasonable snowfall the night and early morning before I set off for my walk so the ground was covered with approx. 4 - 5cms of snow. There are a total of 27 pictures which can all be seen below or on Clickasnap where they are full size, resolution and un-watermarked.

Taken at the bottom of North Dean Road, I had just crossed the River Calder via
Wilson Bridge and passed St Stephens Church.

This lane looks up towards Pickwood Scar, Norland. I'd not long since passed
over Donkey Bridge
