    Injury Claim in Ilkley Moor


    Moorland consists of wild expanses of land elevated above grass and woodland, but below the contour lines of hill and mountain. Lower down they are heathland. Rich carpets of lush grasses and heathers, mosses and lichens roll out towards the horizon. Moorland is characterised by rocky outcrops and paucity of trees. Colours change through the seasons: peaty blacks and browns in winter, in spring fresh green, and deep yellow gorse flower; then the speckling of pale summer seeds and great spreads of golden stalks, hiding ground-living birds that gobble dried flower heads and teach their fledglings how to survive. Autumn is the most spectacular season with banners of purple and pink heather flowing out in all directions. In winter, Dartmoor (Devon) wears a white cloak of snow, and bare rocky outcrops show through the gaps.

    Like most moorland, Ilkley Moor in Yorkshire has its share of myths and legends. The Yorkshire moors were a favourite setting of the classical Victorian novelists. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brönte is probably the most famous example. Moorland makes a dramatic setting because it is such a harsh environment. A person without adequate clothes and equipment can perish in the weather of a moorland, especially at night. Even in daytime, bad weather and fog can descend without warning, and a person who loses their bearings can easily die of exposure. Together with the sweeping expanses of bleak landscape and high bright skies, a moorland setting transports the reader in its vast dimensions.

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle set his famous detective tale The Hound of The Baskervilles on Dartmoor. Legend of the moor had it that a supernatural blood-thirsty hound roamed unchecked at night, hunting for victims. The reader feels the fear of the poor character stranded and vulnerable in Conan Doyle’s story. The first book of the series caused a sensation when it was first published, and is still popular today.
