Beverley Westwood, East Yorkshire, England
The sledders in our photo are enjoying a snowy day in England, bundled up and hurtling down a hill at Beverley Westwood Common near Black Mill in East Yorkshire. Beverley Westwood, located to the southeast of the town of Beverley, was given to the people by the Lord of the Manor in 1380. This means that nowadays the locals can utilise the land for grazing cattle and sheep. The wide, open spaces of the park are incredibly popular among locals and visitors alike, who use the park for picnics, dog walking, bird watching and even enjoying a round of golf. Beverley Racecourse is also in the vicinity for those who’d like something different. The park offers approximately 6.5 kilometres of green pastures, as well as wild bluebells in the spring. You may also have some company on your day trip to Beverley Westwood, as the cows have been known to try to make friends with visitors.
