Brimham Rocks is one of the finest gritstone playgrounds in the whole of England so it is perhaps not surprising that the trig point receives little notice. Everyone is too busy exploring and scrambling around all the rocks.
The view from the Brimham Rocks trig point is quite impressive, especially to the south and south-east where it is virtually uninterrupted. For views of Nidderdale it is best to go the Lover’s Leap rocks on the other side of the visitor center.
I’ve been going to Brimham Rocks since I was a child so though I’ve listed eight visits above the true figure is likely to be 2-3 times that number. Even my daughter must have been up there with me at least 4-5 times now!
