05/11/17 - Black Dick's Temple

My second trip out today, having missed the sunrise I didn't want to miss the sunset, so came up to Balck Dick's Temple overlooking Kirkheaton. The angle of the sun was perfect for the sun through one of the windows, and then when the sun had dropped some nice images towards Castle Hill. An interesting monument in memory of Sir Richard Beaumont, known as 'Black Dick of the North', who died in 1631. He was known as Black Dick not for his unsavoury reputation but for his thick black curly hair
