Fleeting Light at Castle Hill

Fleeting Light at Castle Hill - Landscape Photography
Low evening sunlight on a spring evening, catches Victoria Tower on Castle Hill, Huddersfield. The hill has been the site of a mesolithic hunting camp, a bronze age enclosure, an iron age hillfort, possibly a roman observation point and a norman motte and bailey castle.

It has also been the site of a short lived medieval village and chartist ralleys. The curretn tower was built to celebrate Queen Victoria's Silver Jubilee and was built of stone from quarries in Crosland Moor.

The hill has a number of legends attached to it, such as the Devil's leep from Netherton scar, tunnels that lead out into the surrounding landscape and is also the home of a sleeping dragon that guards a golden cradle.
