Savile Park, Halifax.

A small set of 7 pictures taken early Yesterday morning whilst walking across Savile Park, Halifax. Savile Park is known locally by a few different names including The Moor, Skircoat Moor and Skircoat Common. The land was acquired by the Savile Family who asked that the land never be enclosed, since then the land has been used for the Halifax Agricultural show, Rugby League and Football, it is popular with runners and the local Grammar School Crossley Heath users the moor for sports. It was used in the World War II dig for victory campaign which saw the moor dug over to grow vegetables for the public. The moor has hosted the great Yorkshire Show on at least 4 occasions. 

It is bordered by Crossley Heath School to the west, Manor Heath Park to the east and features the Thorp Fountain on the north eastern corner.

The pictures were taken on the 20th October 2018 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. 6 can be seen here and on Flickr, with 1 additional picture of the Thorp Fountain looking south west across the park exclusive to Clickasnap via the link below.

The picture can only be seen there and can also be downloaded for a small fee. The images below are from the Flickr collection.
