Grouse Beating and the Moors

Just a few pictures of Grouse Beating on the moorland above Hawes, taken around and over the years.

As you can see the season goes from summer to winter, starting on the glourious 12th of August and finishing on the 10th of December, hence the snow.

Usually involves being taken up on to the moor in Land Rovers or other off-road vehicles often of an ex-military nature. Then being divided into teams of beaters, whilst the guns get in to Continue reading
