    The rocks are situated at Ilkley Quarry. They consist of an outcrop and boulder. Made of millstone grit they get their name because one is large and the smaller one sits next to it, like a cow and a calf.

    The Cow and Calf rocks on Ilkley Moor are quite a long uphill walk from the centre of Ilkley. One thing that kept me motivated along the walk was knowing that on reaching the area, I could stop for a drink in the Cow and Calf pub.

    This traditional country pub overlooks Ilkley Moor and the Cow & Calf rocks. The pub has an extensive food menu and a good selection of ales. As it was quite busy on my visit, I didn't have a meal. I sat with my pint in the pubs beer garden and took in the views of Ilkley Moor. If you fancy staying here overnight, there are 13 bedrooms.

    All Saints Parish Church

    This living church in the centre of Ilkley stands on the site of the ancient Roman fort of Olicana. It's been a site of Christian worship for more than 1000 years.

    The remains of three Saxon crosses that stood in the churchyard are now displayed in the tower. Parts of the church date back to Norman times, but the church was substantially rebuilt in the 1860's.

    Go up to Cow and Calf

    by largerama Written Mar 4, 2006

    One of my favourite half or full day trips is to go up to the Cow and Calf just outside of Ilkley. It's part of Ilkley Moor so you can sing the famours Ilkley Moor Ba' T' At song there if you fancy!!

    Its great for walking, climbing and abseiling but you can just go up and enjoy the view, admire 100 year old graffiti and have the wind nearly blow you off your feet. I love i up there in winter and there is a pub across the road.

    Better still is to go walking across the moors until you find a pub for a pint and lunch then walk back again.

    Ilkley Moor is the highest part of Rambald's Moor and lies above the town of Ilkley. It's worth a visit for the spectacular views as well as being a great place for walking.
