After seeing the landscape and getting a taste of Brimham Rocks, join the conversation and listen to guest speakers Jo Woolf, author of Britain’s Landmarks and Legends, and Mark Newman, National Trust archaeologist and author of The Wonder of the North, discuss the fascinating stories embedded in these special landscapes. Hear the secrets and stories of iconic British landmarks, including Brimham Rocks, and discover a deeper appreciation for these ancient and fascinating landscapes.
